GLBT Historical Society photos in new Milk bio

Five photographs held by the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco are featured in Milk, the new film chronicling the life of Harvey Milk, who was one of the nation's first openly gay elected officials. In addition, producers carefully combed through numerous archival collections held by the repository and created replicas of Milk's chair, dining table, and suit, all of which are also held the repository, for use in the film.

The GLBT Historical Society, which graciously hosted the 2008 annual meeting of the Society of American Archivists' Lesbian and Gay Archives Roundtable a few months ago, is also putting the finishing touches on an exhibit, Passionate Struggle, that will be housed in its new display space on Castro Street.

Kudos to Rebekah and all the other hardworking folks at the GLBT Historical Society!
