SF Pride Supports Harvey Milk SFO

At the February 12 General Planning Meeting, the San Francisco Pride Board of Directors and membership unanimously voted to support Supervisor David Campos’ campaign to re-name San Francisco International Airport in honor of the slain LGBT rights icon.

Things to know:

  • Eighty airports in the United States are named after individuals, but not one is named after an LGBT leader.
  • Harvey Milk is worthy of this honor – as the first gay man to win public office in SF, he remains one of the most iconic figures in the LGBT rights movement.
  • Adding Harvey Milk’s name to our local airport will present a unique opportunity to send a message about the struggle for justice and equality throughout the United States and abroad.

There will be a rally in support of this campaign on February 22 at 12 Noon at the steps of San Francisco’s City Hall. For more information visit the campaign’s web site at http://harveymilksfo.com.
