    Sneak Peek at SFO's Harvey Milk Terminal

    The Harvey Milk Terminal at San Francisco International Airport is set to open up to travelers in July.

    The $2.4 billion terminal, which is named in honor of former San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected official in California, will include nine gates, improved passenger circulation and new concessions.

    Aside from the normal features travelers would find in most airport terminals, SFO's new terminal will be the first to commemorate a member of the LGBTQ community as it honors the life and legacy of Milk. 

    Milk served as a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in the late 1970s before he and Mayor George Moscone were shot and killed by a former colleague in 1978.

    The Milk exhibit inside the terminal will feature content from the archives of the San Francisco Library and GLBT Historical Society.
