A lawmaker in San Francisco on Tuesday will introduce a proposal allowing voters to decide whether or not to rename the city's airport to honor the slain local icon and gay rights activist Harvey Milk, the Associated Press reported.
From the AP:
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.
