Summary In 1978, Cleve Jones, Ken Jones and Roma Guy work together to fight Proposition 6, which would ban the LGBTQI community and their allies from working in California public schools. Ken lives secretly with his boyfriend, Richard, a social worker who would lose his job if the ballot measure were to pass. Meanwhile, Roma quickly discovers that living with her ex-girlfriend Diane and her current girlfriend, Jean, isn't exactly ideal when Diane announces that she's going to have one of the first ever lesbian "turkey-baster" babies. Now living in the Castro with friends Marvin and Scott, Cleve works on the campaign to elect Harvey Milk as San Francisco City Supervisor. Victory soon turns to tragedy when Milk is assassinated. The ballot box, the police, and the courts unable or unwilling to protect them, our characters rise up and take to the streets. Stars Guy Pearce, Rachel Griffiths, Mary-Louise Parker, Michael Kenneth Williams, Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg
