San Diego to have first Harvey Milk Street in nation

Written by Jen Lebron Kuhney

San Diego will be the first city in the country to have a street named for gay civil rights activist Harvey Milk.

The City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to rename the two-block road leading up to the San Diego LGBT Community Center in Hillcrest from Blaine Avenue to Harvey Milk Street in honor of the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in California.

'This is a great day of pride for our community, our district and this city,' said Councilman Todd Gloria, who is gay and represents the Hillcrest area.

Across the nation, plazas, centers and schools are named after Milk. But the Hillcrest street will be the first in any city named after the late San Francisco supervisor, according to U-T San Diego research and other reports.

The name change is expected to become official later this month.
