In honor of the visionary civil and human rights leader Harvey Milk’s 93rd birthday, enjoy another screening of EXECUTION OF JUSTICE by Emily Mann.
Despite the hostility towards the LGBTQ+ community at the time, Harvey Milk was unapologetic about his sexuality, running as the first openly gay candidate for public office in 1973. After finally winning a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977, Milk was a fierce advocate for safe neighborhoods centered around public services like libraries and community policing. PCTC honors Milk’s legacy through our ongoing partnership with Harvey Milk High School.
