In video released Wednesday (1 May), Jane Fonda reflects warmly on her friendship with slain gay rights activist Harvey Milk.
Fonda, speaking at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center's Conversations With Coco event, worked with Milk in 1978 to fight the Briggs Initiative, a ballot measure seeking to ban gay teachers in California.
'We were friends,' Fonda told drag performer Coco Peru. 'He was the most wonderful, loveable.'
She added that Milk had a 'huge generous heart (and) spirit.'
