In 1978, Harvey Milk became the first openly gay elected official in the United States. In a time when the LGBTQ community was persecuted, Milk used his charisma and perseverance to win over a city. Come explore the stories of Milk's rise, impact and tragic murder through the monuments, institutions and streets of the Castro District. We'll see the first gay bar in the city, Milk's campaign headquarters, his hangouts and several other fixtures of his life. This is an exploration of human rights, hope and understanding for everyone.
