Not on screen, and not a young child, but a young gay man, maybe a teenager, who is confined to a wheelchair, mentions that his parents are going to send him to a hospital to "fix him". One can easily assume this is some sort of conversion therapy, which is considered a form of abuse. This causes the young man to express feelings of suicide. You only see this character briefly and you don't see what happens to him, but under the category of abuse it seemed worth mentioning.

At 42 minutes some of the scenes are filmed from the perspective of a person within a large crowd of angry protesters. They way it looks might give someone feelings of claustrophobia.

Mostly no, but there are a few scenes during protests where the camera is shakey and it's being filmed from the perspective of a person in the crowd.

There's hate speech directed at LGBTQ+ people, but it's there for context and accuracy of the history of what LGBTQ+ peoples had to endure in the 1970s.

This is a biopic of gay rights activist Harvey Milk, who was the first openly gay person elected to public office in the U.S. Unfortunately, he was assissinated and if you're unaware of this incident, you find out anyway within the first few minutes of the movie, via flashbacks to a press conference, that he will eventually be killed, so no spoilers knowing this before watching the movie.

There's also a death of a peripheral LGBTQ+ character.
