Harvey Milk San Francisco Airport

‎Gay brothers and sisters,... You must come out. Come out... to your parents... Come out to your relatives... come out to your friends... Come out to your neighbors... to your fellow workers... to the people who work where you eat and shop... once and for all, break down the myths, destroy the lies and distortions. For your sake. For their sake.

I would like to see every gay doctor come out, every gay lawyer, every gay architect come out, stand up and let that world know. That would do more to end prejudice overnight than anybody would imagine.

If a bullet should enter my brain, let that bullet destroy every closet door in the country.

~ Harvey Milk, the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California and the United States. Assassinated November 27, 1978. He was shot five times, twice in the head. Harvey Milk stood up for me before I was even born. He worked to make the world a better place for gay people, even though it was unpopular, dangerous, and fatal.

Where better to honor Harvey Milk's legacy of acceptance and welcoming than SFO airport? Please support this petition. Especially if you have any connection to San Francisco. Come out, and show the world that everyone deserves to be welcomed into San Francisco.
