Before you go and check out Milk, you should probably take the time to learn some more about this man:
Which means you should set some time aside tomorrow night to come to this:
The Times of Harvey Milk
A fundraiser for Out in Schools
November 27, 2008 is the thirtieth anniversary of the assassination of Harvey Milk. In 1978, Milk, the first openly gay person elected to office in the United States, was gunned down by fellow city official Dan White. To commemorate this tragic event, Out In Schools is screening The Times of Harvey Milk, an eloquent documentary that follows Milk's compelling life leading up to his election, his successful efforts to politically represent San Francisco's gay community, and the city's reaction to the assassinations. This 1983 film is a must see precursor to the Hollywood drama 'Milk', directed by Gus Van Sant and starring Sean Penn.
