Description

Dr. Thorin Tritter, HMTC’s museum and programming director, will discuss an image of Harvey Milk that is included in the museum’s final gallery, highlighting his role as an “upstander.” The presentation will also explore the gay right’s movement in the 1970s and its effort to reclaim the meaning of the pink triangle, which had been used to identify gay men in Nazi concentration camps.
