“Milk” to air on USA Network tomorrow – with a special introduction from Neil Patrick Harris

With all that is going on right now in the movement for LGBT equality, it is a good time to revisit a movie about a civil rights icon who no doubt would still be fighting the good fight.

He’s Harvey Milk and the movie is the outstanding Milk directed by Gus Van Sant with an Oscar-winning screenplay by Dustin Lance Black and an Oscar-winning performance by Sean Penn.

In commemoration of LGBT Pride Month, the film will air on the USA Network at 8 pm with limited commercial interruptions and Neil Patrick Harris is doing a special introduction of it.

The next film is a part of NBC Universal’s quarterly series that builds upon the Characters Unite public service campaign to advance the national dialogue to help combat hate and discrimination and promote greater tolerance and acceptance.

‘Harvey Milk gave hope to generations of gay and lesbian Americans by encouraging them to live their lives openly and to speak out against the discrimination and prejudice they faced,” said NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Group Chairman Bonnie Hammer. “We are honored to share his story in commemoration of Gay Pride Month.”
