Glaad’s Got “Milk”

January 22, 2009

“Milk,” about the life of slain gay rights activist Harvey Milk earned 8 Oscar nominations on Thursday. At the Sundance Film Festival we talked with Ellen Huang, founder of the Queer Lounge, a program sponsored by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, about how high profile films like “Milk” have helped LGBT films reach mainstream audiences.




This Film is an American Treasure.
