Harvey Milk Movie Screening

Date/Time: Friday, June 3, 2022 at 6:00PM
In-Person Location: PCC, EE-107

Harvey Milk was an outspoken human rights activist and one of the first openly gay U.S. politicians elected to public office; even long after his assassination in 1978, he continues to inspire disenfranchised people around the world. One of the first feature documentaries to address gay life in America, the film is a work of advocacy itself, bringing Milk’s message of hope and equality to a wider audience.
