In solidarity and in community with those who tragically lost their lives at the Pulse nightclub attack in Orlando we present a screening of MILK, with all proceeds benefitting the survivors of the attack through the fund at Equality Florida.
Gay Rights Activist. Friend. Lover. Unifier. Politician. Fighter. Icon. Inspiration. Hero. His life changed history, and his courage changed lives. In 1977, Harvey Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, becoming the first openly gay man to be voted into major public office in America. His victory was not just a victory for gay rights; he forged coalitions across the political spectrum. From senior citizens to union workers, Harvey Milk changed the very nature of what it means to be a fighter for human rights and became, before his untimely death in 1978, a hero for all Americans.
MILK was written by openly gay screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (who won an Academy Award for his script) and directed by openly gay filmmaker Gus Van Sant. Actor Sean Penn’s portrayal of Milk, garnered him his second Academy Award.
Like the 49 dead in Orlando, Harvey Milk’s life was cut-tragically short yet his legacy has lived on to help LGBTQ people of all colors, creeds, and identities. Let’s gather in remembrance of those lost and in solidarity to build a better world.
“The first great film to look at civil rights from the perspective of the gay movement.”
– HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“Sean Penn never tries to show Harvey Milk as a hero, and never needs to. He shows him as an ordinary man, kind, funny, flawed, shrewd, idealistic, yearning for a better world.”
– ROGER EBERT
“Gus Van Sant and screenwriter Dustin Lance Black pull off something very close to magic. They make a film that’s both historically precise and as graceful, unpredictable, and moving as a good fiction film–that is to say, a work of art.”
“Harvey Milk was an intriguing, inspiring figure. Milk is a marvel.”
