A COMMUNITY HAS GOT MILK
One of the challenges any film faces these days is building a community of people around it — an audience that is energized and inspired by not just the movie, when it comes out, but the idea of the movie before it hits the theaters. One film sure to draw passionate engagement is Gus Van Sant’s upcoming Milk, and already its website is drawing moving and personal postings on Harvey Milk and his importance to multiple generations of gay and lesbian men and women. Check out the Milk site and read not only about Harvey Milk’s life but also the lives of some of the everyday people he has influenced. And, if you are someone who has been touched by the life and work of Harvey Milk, consider putting up your own recollection.
