Milk is the 2008 Gus Van Sant biopic about Harvey Milk, who, in 1977, was the first openly gay man to be voted into public office in the United States when he was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Milk’s victory set the tone for the ongoing struggle for gay rights in the country. He also was a savvy politician, who forged coalitions across the political spectrum.
