The Times of Harvey Milk is a historical documentary made in 1984 by Rob Epstein documenting the life and political career of Harvey Milk.
Harvey Milk was the first elected openly-gay official in the history of California, having been elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. He would later gain more popularity among the public and win a seat as a city supervisor, using his increased power to push gay rights.
Milk only had a short political career because on November 27, 1978, Milk and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White, who was another city supervisor. Despite this, Milk became a martyr in the gay community and to this day is considered by many to be the most significant LGBT official in the history of the United States.
