Ferniedog2u I 100% agree with you on what you had to say. People who stand out are more remembered than the ones who don't. Harvey Milk had a voice and he used it to stand up to every one, to fight for what he believed in and went place no one thought homosexuals should go or could go. This movie showed and proved that homosexuals are just like every one else just

Very well done movie, but over-rated. Homosexuals get a raw deal in most countries, severely so in Muslim countries. This film exploits that theme.

This movie changed my life i am a 13 year gay boy and the movie made me think about how f@#*ed up the U.S.A. is and you can hate us but we can be who or whatever we want to be. We the homosexuals are not to different from you heteros. We are people too and we have feelings and if you r homophobic well that sucks for you because we are going to be whatever we want to be and you cant change that!

Milk was an amazing movie and extraordinary because of what it depicts. Racism, Hatred, Anger just overwhelms society and very few people stand against it and you know what, those are the people that matter. Not the millions that go with the flow and that don't stand out in the crowd, they'll soon be forgotten and lives wasted. But moreso, Harvey Milk wasn't a hero in essence he just encouraged
