    A San Francisco lawmaker on Tuesday planned to introduce legislation asking voters to rename the city's airport after slain gay rights leader Harvey Milk.

    A charter amendment sponsored by Supervisor David Campos would put the question of creating Harvey Milk-San Francisco International Airport on San Francisco's November ballot.

    If five of Campos' colleagues agree to submit the proposed name change to voters and the amendment goes through in the fall, the city would become home to the world's first airport honoring an openly gay person, said Milk's nephew, Stuart Milk.

    As an SF resident, naming it after Milk makes sense and I'd be fine with the change. However, I kinda like that the name of the airport is just San Francisco International. It's simple and classic. Not every airport needs to be named after someone.
