San Diego May Be First City to get Harvey Milk Street
Today, the San Diego City Planning Commission
approved a proposal to rename a street after LGBT civil rights leader Harvey
Milk. The proposal will now be sent to
the full city council for approval. If
approved, San Diego will become the first city in the nation to have a street
named for the LGBT rights pioneer.
The proposal is
particularly significant as Harvey Milk was stationed in San Diego while he
served in the US Navy as a diving instructor.
Blaine Avenue, the street leading up to The San Diego LGBT Community Center
will be renamed Harvey Milk Street in time for the anniversary of his birthday;
May 22. – You would think San Francisco would have already done this!
