—  Harvey Bernard Milk (1930 - 1978), American politician who became the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California, when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Politics and gay activism were not his early interests; he was not open about his homosexuality and did not participate in civic matters until around the age of 40, after his experiences in the counterculture of the 1960s.  Milk moved from New York City to settle in San Francisco in 1972 amid a migration of gay men to the Castro District. He took advantage of the growing political and economic power of the neighborhood to promote his interests, and ran unsuccessfully for political office three times. His theatrical campaigns earned him increasing popularity, and Milk won a seat as a city supervisor in 1977.  Milk served almost 11 months in office and was responsible for passing a stringent gay rights ordinance for the city. On November 27, 1978, Milk and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White, another city supervisor who had recently resigned but wanted his job back. Despite his short career in politics, Milk became an icon in San Francisco and a martyr in the gay community.  In 2002, Milk was called “the most famous and most significantly open LGBT official ever elected in the United States”.  Milk was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.

The “Doodler” or “Black Doodler” was an unidentified serial killer who is believed to have killed as many as 14 gay men in San Francisco in the 1970′s. He was given this nickname due to the very disturbing fact that he would draw his victims before having sex with them and then brutally stabbing them to death. He met his victims in various nightclubs, and at a time when it was difficult to come out as being gay due to prejudice, three men he attacked and survived refused to come forward to testify out of fear of how the community would react to them being gay. One of the surviving victims was said to be an entertainer while another was said to be a US diplomat. Harvey Milk, the Mayor of San Francisco, who was also a gay man himself came forward to offer empathy and support to the surviving victims - “I can understand their position. I respect the pressure society has put on them… my feeling is that they don’t want to be exposed.” The case still remains unsolved.

Today is Harvey Milk Day in California, and would have been Harvey Milk’s 85th birthday. With his election to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977, Milk became the first openly gay man to be elected in California, and the first non-incumbent openly gay man to be elected in the United States. On November 27, 1978, Milk and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White, a former member of the Board of Supervisors.

Rob Epstein’s documentary The Times of Harvey Milk received a Special Jury Prize at the 1985 Sundance Film Festival, and went on to win that year’s Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. The film tells the story of Milk’s political life, and the assassination and trial which vaulted him to posthumous national fame. In 2000, The Sundance Collection at UCLA selected the film as a preservation project, and The Times of Harvey Milk returned to the Festival in 2001, screening for the first time in 35mm. In 2012, it was chosen by the Library of Congress for inclusion in the National Film Registry.

Epstein has been a Sundance Film Festival regular since 1985–in fact, since 1992, the Festival has never gone more than three years without screening one of his films. Most recently, his film Lovelace premiered at the 2013 Festival.
