         Milk is a biographical film of Harvey Milk, particularly his life in San Francisco campaigning and his death as an elected official. This film depicts the life of Harvey Milk during his culturally inspired political campaign against anti-gay propositions in Californian and some of the tactics he used. The film in itself was used as such against a more recent anti-gay proposition that to be voted on two weeks after the film was released.

“The Times of Harvey Milk”
         This is in-depth documentary of Harvey Milk and his life in politics. The documentary focuses on his dissonant relationship with political opponent Dan White, who later murdered Milk along with the current mayor, George Mascone.

"The Mayor of Castro Street: The Life and Times of Harvey Milk"

I have not actually looked at this source, but apparently it is one of the few written works I have been able to find. Hopefully, I will get it (via the cuny graduate center) in time to write the essay.
