SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco lawmakers are considering whether to ask voters to rename the city's airport after one of their own: slain gay rights leader Harvey Milk.
Supervisor David Campos plans to introduce a charter amendment on Tuesday that would put the question of creating Harvey Milk International Airport on the city's November ballot.
Milk's nephew, Stuart Milk, says that if the name change goes through, San Francisco would be home to the world's only airport honoring an openly gay person.
Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977 and responsible for one of the nation's first gay rights ordinances. He was assassinated at City Hall along with Mayor George Moscone more than a year later.
