The 2008 movie, Milk was a true story based on the life and challenges of Harvey Milk. Harvey Milk was an openly gay activist that through personal triumphs became the first gay elected official in California. He accomplished this during a time when America as a whole failed to accept the gay/lesbian lifestyle. It could even be said that America feared the morality of homosexuality across all levels. In many ways Harvey Milk gave strength and hope to individuals who had to hide. He opened the eyes of many who had once feared or at the very least failed to understand homosexuality. He fought so that those with him and those that would come after him would have a better life, so that people could have to right to live regardless of who they loved. This movie shows how Harvey Milk by mere chance changed history. In the beginning Harvey had a small protest within his community to protect his rights, to be treated equally and fairly. Soon after he had followers within his small community. These followers fuelled his desire to fight for all, a desire that would lead him across many political battlefields and eventually bring him to victory. Harvey Milk fought for business rights within the gay communities. He fought against discrimination that gay and lesbian parents faced within the school district, as well as equal rights for school faculty members that just happen to not be heterosexual. Without Harvey Milk progress could have been delayed. Gay Marriage rights may have been stalled another several years and possibly even a decade or two. Harvey was a pioneer for equality, without him humanity would have certainly suffered. He didn't dislike his opponents and he didn't protest for fame, he simply stood up for what he believed was right. This movie accurately documents his challenges as well as his achievements.
