On a rainy day in January, on the steps of San Francisco’s City Hall, Harvey Milk was sworn into office, the first openly gay elected city official in the United States of America. Harvey Milk had made history.

In making history that day, Minnie Milk’s intelligent, energetic and courageous son “showed the world that by not being afraid to be yourself, you can give others the courage to be proud of who they are.”


“Capturing just the right tone for its audience, this is a significant contribution to the genre.”
Kirkus Reviews
