Dustin Lance Black

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – The story of Harvey Milk - the San Francisco city politican who live his life and ran his campaigns as an openly gay man in the 1970s - was a revelation to the writer Dustin Lance Black. Milk's story helped Black, himself gay and raised in a Mormon family, to navigate his way through some very personal territory. Black won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for the film "Milk," and Friday on RadioWest, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with him about Harvey Milk's story and his own. (Rebroadcast)
