The Associated Press reports:
A San Francisco lawmaker on Tuesday planned to introduce legislation asking voters to rename the city’s airport after slain gay rights leader Harvey Milk.A charter amendment sponsored by Supervisor David Campos would put the question of creating Harvey Milk-San Francisco International Airport on San Francisco’s November ballot. If five of Campos’ colleagues agree to submit the proposed name change to voters and the amendment goes through in the fall, the city would become home to the world’s first airport honoring an openly gay person, said Milk’s nephew, Stuart Milk.
This would be an incredible way to honor a true hero in the LGBT community’s flagship city. I love the idea because it not only pays homage to Milk, but it educates about the struggle for equal rights. For LGBT youth across the world, flying into San Francisco would become an even more special experience than it already is.
