Harvey Milk film to be shown Tuesday

PFLAG Nevada County will screen the movie “Milk” at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains in Grass Valley. The community is invited. “Milk” stars Sean Penn, who portrays Harvey Milk, who became one of the first openly gay officials in the United States in 1977, when he was elected to the San Francisco board of supervisors. Tragically, he was killed the following year. The film follows Milk’s fight for equal gay rights during one of the least tolerant times in U.S. history. The cast also includes Josh Brolin, Emile Hirsch, Diego Luna and James Franco. Milk has become an important symbol to the LGBTQ people throughout the world. There will be time for a discussion after the movie.

The movie will be immediately following PFLAG’S two monthly support groups that begin at 6 p.m., held at the same location, 246 South Church Street in Grass Valley. The group offers a transgender support group and our usual LGBTQ support group and all are welcome to attend either group. There is no charge for our groups and all ages, orientations, families, allies, and friends are invited. For more information, call 530-274-1423.
