Harvey Milk's radical vision of equality
By 1973, Harvey Milk had already been many things: naval officer, high school teacher, bit-part actor and wandering hippie. Starting fresh in San Francisco, his belief in a more personal approach to local government led him to run for office in the heart of American gay culture, the Castro. Lillian Faderman details the tenacity and courage of California's first openly gay public official. [Directed by Tomás Pichardo-Espaillat, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by WORKPLAYWORK and Cem Misirlioglu].
