WASHINGTON (AP) — A Catholic University student group postponed a screening of a movie about gay rights pioneer Harvey Milk after school officials raised questions about a flier linking the event to LGBT awareness month.

The Washington Post reports (http://wapo.st/1vC01KA ) that a chapter of the College Democrats planned to screen "Milk" on Wednesday evening on the Northeast Washington campus.

A rainbow-covered flier promoting the event urges students to "kick off LGBT awareness month" by attending the screening.

The morning of the event, a Catholic student affairs official who had seen the flier called to ask the group to postpone it.

A university spokesman said Thursday that the reference to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender awareness month took officials by surprise. He questioned whether the event had turned from education to advocacy.
