* DragQueen: None of the major characters, but they can be seen in the background of all the major protests. And of course, preforming in Harvey's larger-than-life [[spoiler: last]] birthday party.

* {{Gayborhood}}: Justified due to the setting, since it was Harvey's base of political support.

to:

* {{Gayborhood}}: Justified due to the setting, since it was Harvey's base of political support. After all, Castro is the original Gayborhood
* GayConservative: According to Scott, Milk himself was originally one. A more played straight kind of example is David Goodstein.



* MayDecemberRomance: Harvey is in his early 40s, while at least one of his boyfriends appears to be in his early-to-mid 20s (who even starts their relationship by asserting he doesn't date guys over 40).

* TalkingDownTheSuicidal: Harvey talks Paul, a disabled gay kid, out of killing himself.

Added DiffLines:

* ThoseTwoGuys: Plabich and Rivaldo - never get any screen time alone. [[WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue epilogue]] shows they became partners in a political consulting firm.
* TokenLesbian: Anne Kronenberg, the campaign manager.
** Also, a played down ButchLesbian. (It is [[AdaptationalAttractiveness Alison Pill]], after all).


Added DiffLines:

* TheTwink: Several examples - photographer Danny Nicoletta definitely qualifies, and Jack is more if a BrokenBird example. Cleve is depicted as one in his first appearance.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Maybe a smidge, but the photomontage at the end shows that they got the likenesses really close. And the performances are excellent across the board, so it's easy to forgive.
