FREE night out at the cinema to watch MILK - Evening of Thursday 29th January
It’s the story of Harvey Milk, a middle-aged New Yorker who after moving to San Francisco became a Gay Rights activist and city politician. On his third attempt he was elected to San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors in 1977, making him the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in the USA. A year later he was shot dead.
