SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – A San Francisco supervisor has been trying to drum up support for a ballot measure that would rename San Francisco International Airport after gay rights icon Harvey Milk.
Supervisor David Campos said naming SFO after Milk would send a message “that LGBT people are worthy of respect” to the 44 million travelers who pass through the airport each year.
“We have more than 80 airports in this country alone that are named after individuals. And not a single one of those airports is named after an openly LGBT person,” Campos said.
