“Milk”: the story of the making of LGBT rights

This is a biographical movie I watched this week with some people from Ross- my residence hall here at Middlebury. The movie was meant to inspire conversation about LGBT issues since the recent act of hatred against a girl associating with the LGBT community who has received a threatening note.

The movie tells the story of Harvey Milk- an American politician who was the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California and his determination to put an end to all the discrimination and violence against gay people.
