Equality California has learned that the San Francisco Board of Supervisors is planning to move forward with a proposal to rename San Francisco International Airport to Harvey Milk International Airport, after the former supervisor who was the first proudly gay man elected to office in America.

Renaming the airport for Harvey Milk would be an international symbol of hope and freedom, and an enormous educational opportunity. People from around the world — including countries where being gay is still against the law — will learn about Milk’s great legacy. This is a chance to lead the world and affect positive change on a global scale.

San Francisco International Airport serves over 40 million passengers a year, with 59 airlines serving 105 airports throughout the world. This would be the first airport in the world named after a proudly LGBT person.
