One of the things that’s striking a lot of people about Milk is how regrettably timely it is right now, with Proposition 8 (i.e., eliminating gay marriage) on the ballot in California. Which makes you wonder if the movie should have been released before Election Day as a way to organize people to vote this measure down. In the view of CHUD’s Devin Faraci, in the 30 years since Harvey Milk died we really haven’t come very far in terms of gay rights.
