Harvey Milk Plaque
In this photo taken Dec. 9, 2010, a bronze plaque dedicated to Harvey Milk is seen on the sidewalk beside his former camera storefront and home in San Francisco. The San Francisco storefront where the Harvey Milk launched his campaign to become the first gay man elected to a major office in the United States is getting a new tenant, one some gay rights activists are none too happy about. But the unwelcome occupant isn't a Starbucks, Gap or other chain outlets that often make waves in the city _ it's the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay rights group.

San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk Window
In this photo taken Dec. 9, 2010, a painting of former San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk is seen on the second story of Milk's former home and campaign headquarters Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010, in San Francisco. The San Francisco storefront where Harvey Milk launched his campaign to become the first gay man elected to a major office in the United States is getting a new tenant, one some gay rights activists are none too happy about. But the unwelcome occupant isn't a Starbucks, Gap or other chain outlets that often make waves in the city _ it's the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay rights group. The NIMBY outbreak stems from a long-running divide between HRC and activists who say it exemplifies the sort of assimilationist politics that Milk railed against before his 1978 assassination.
