The Times of Harvey Milk – Sunday 14th February 2016 @ 14:30, The Hive. Plus: Harvey’s nephew, Stuart Milk, President of The Harvey Milk Foundation will be giving a talk. Like Harvey, Stuart has chosen to speak out as an openly gay advocate for not only the LGBT community, but all who remain marginalized or diminished by inequality in the law, or societal inequality.
Peter Scott-Presland was on great form: entertaining and informative. He read from personal accounts in the book, which was riveting. A really good discussion followed and a number of books were sold. A big ‘Thank you’ to Peter, who put so much into making the event a success and Maria and Karen at Two Fat Rascals for hosting it.
We are eager this year to feature a number of screening outside Shrewsbury as requested in some of the feedback forms during previous festival weekends.
Is there a community hall, local cinema or other suitable venue you would like the festival to come to? Is there an organisation you would like us to present to? Do get in touch and we will do our best.
