The U.S. Embassy in Warsaw and the Campaign Against Homophobia are pleased to invite you to a free screening of the Oscar-winning film Milk on Wednesday, July 22 at 18:00 at the Center for Contemporary Art’s Kino.Lab (ul. Jazdow 2).  The film tells the story of Harvey Milk, who in 1972 became the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in the United States.  Covering his life from activism to political office to his assassination in 1978, the film tells the story of a man who stood up for equal rights at a time when prejudice and even anti-gay violence was socially acceptable.  Milk’s life and death brought these issues to the political forefront, and the film has inspired a new discussion about gay rights in today’s world.  We invite you to join us in this discussion after the film.

The film will be shown with Polish subtitles and attendance is free of charge.
