The times of Harvey Milk , Trailer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miGYCk3vA-M

This Documentary was about the times in San Francisco, during the mid 1970's, which was kind of about a clash of cultures, in that San Francisco use to be more like a East Coast city, say 'Boston', than the distinct West Coast city it morphed into later. I mean it's hard to imagine San Francisco as being a Archie Bunker type Conservative city, but it was for the longest time, and 'The times of Harvey Milk' is a movie about what happened when these two cultures begin to clash, a changing of the guard one could say, and how some resisted that, and even took it to the extreme, is where

Dan White Comes into play..https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_White

That name will have more meaning to those in the LGBTQ culture more so than to those not apart of it, particulalry if over the age of, say, 40.

For Danny White was to the LGBTQ community what James Earl Ray was to the black civil rights community, and nation.

The above trailer is a Documentary clip, I looked up after watching another 'Showtime' produced movie that came out in 2008, which I'll share later.

But what struck me about the above video is how it totally has that open street festival gleem, that was so prevalent back during the 1970's.
Sure it centers around LGBTQ life issues and all, but other people, from that era, partied in similar ways, so watching video is just kind of a snap shot into the past, how things were.

If younger, that's what your grandparents or parents were doing back then (they weren't always old and square), and if older than that's what you were doing, or brothers and sisters were doing back then.

Just a different era, many say it was better, at least if lived in urban center, although everything always looks better through the eyes of Hollywood.

The times of Harvey Milk movie (2008) Sean Penn plays Harvey

I'm sure when this movie came out in 2008, most had no idea what it was about unless older, and apart of the LGBTQ movie, and I'm sure even less know what it's about now, in fact, I don't even remember it coming out at all, but funny how watching one late night movie can totally arouse one's sense of curiosity in history and look things up.
The above movie is based on the true life story of the man in video below.

I mean history is History, and this idea that Confederate history is the only history in America is absurd, I mean there's much more history to America, than just and only the history  of racists.
