An Excerpt fromPride: The Story of Harvey Milk and the Rainbow Flag
“You have to give them hope. Hope for a better world, hope for a better tomorrow. . . .”
Harvey Milk was an ordinary man, but he had an extraordinary dream.
That dream would change history.
Harvey dreamed that everyone—even gay people—would have equality.
He dreamed that he and his friends would be treated like everyone else.
He dreamed that one day, people would be able to live and love as they pleased.
