As president of the board of supervisors, it's my duty to make this announcement. Both Mayor Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk have been shot and killed.
Harvey Milk made a taped will before his death, and in it he said: "If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door."
Vito Russo, the film’s publicist remarked that the film has the ability to cross the boundaries of the mainstream audience.  He saw film critics crying at a screening.
 


  Concise effective storytelling.  Just the right historical footage, revealing and moving interviews and a focus on the most relevant facts make it brisk and absorbing.

 

  The summation of a man with admirable courage and convictions representing a population anxious for positive change, plus tragic bookends yields real food for thought.

 

  Numerous altruistic justifications for tolerance are represented here, without being preachy.
