Some will agree traditional marriage has always been between a man and a woman; however, history shows that same-sex marriage did exist in past times. Research states that traditional marriage was between a man and women of the same race (Pro/Con, Should Gay Marriage be Legal?, 2012). This shows that people have evolved to new things. Also people have allowed others to make their own decisions with who they marry.

Milk, as gay man, fought for equal rights for homosexual individuals during a time of sexual repression for sexual minorities. The film correctly portrays the progressive development of Milk’s political ideologies, from when he first moves to San Francisco till his time in office during 1978. In 1972 Harvey Milk and Scott Smith move to San Francisco and buy the Castro Camera, a store which initially sold cameras but later became a political hub for Milk’s campaigning (Source 9). The evident appearance in the film of Milk’s belief in gay rights in seen through his methods of addressing a homophobic bar owner that accosts Milk and Smith on Castro Street (Source 13). Milk displays the same diplomatic, level-headed but firm rejection of homophobic slurs that characterised his entire political campaigning (Source 13).

In addition, LGBT rights have also become a greater discussion topic in households, radio shows, and broadcasts around the world. In spite of this progress, LGBT individuals and their allies still struggle for the basic human rights they deserve. Discrimination feels like a relic of the past--something Americans struggled against and that the United States outlawed in the 1960s.
