Featuring a Special Introduction by Emmy-Winning Actor Neil Patrick Harris
In commemoration of Pride Month, USA Network proudly presents Milk as the fourth film in the Characters Unite Quarterly Film Series. The film recounts the touching true story of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay person to be elected to office in the state of California. His victory in 1977 to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors was not simply a victory for gay rights but also for human rights. He changed the very nature of what it means to be a fighter striving for equality.
Released in 2008, Milk went on to garner eight Academy® Award nominations, winning for Best Actor for Sean Penn and Best Original Screenplay for Dustin Lance Black.
Harvey Milk gave hope to generations of LGBT Americans by encouraging them to live their lives openly and speak out against discrimination. The film showcases the importance of continuing the progress our nation has made since the historic election of Harvey Milk and advancing his dream for a world without hate.
