San Francisco to consider renaming airport for gay icon Harvey Milk

Slain gay-rights pioneer Harvey Milk could greet all airline passengers passing through San Francisco International Airport, if an effort to rename the facility after Milk succeeds.

Renaming SFO to "Harvey Milk San Francisco International Airport" is the idea of Supervisor David Campos, according to reports.

A name change would have to be approved by voters at the November ballot, if enough officials agree to put it there.

If the name change is approved, SFO would be the first airport in the United States named after an openly gay person, said Stuart Milk, Harvey Milk's nephew and a gay rights activist.

1. I'm ok with that. A short hop to San Fran

would be a Milk run.
