“An unforgettable salute to Harvey Milk”
Frontiers in L.A.
…………………………………………………..
“A funny, tragic, stirring, and uplifting portrait of courage, faith, and dignity.”
Les Spindle, Backstage

 


Drawn from over thirty interviews conducted by Patricia Loughrey, Dear Harvey recounts the achievements and vision of the first openly gay man elected to a major public office in the United States.  

A drag queen, a State Senator, an international gay rights activist, a nineteen-year-old composer… the play weaves these voices and more with the personal and political writings of Harvey Milk to paint a portrait of a leader, and a vision for equality.

Supported by photos from Milk’s friends and family, Dear Harveycelebrates the stories not found in history books: stories of a love that reached beyond fear
