A U.S Navy ship named for slain gay rights leader Harvey Milk was launched and christened by a transgender veteran in San Diego Bay on Saturday.
Harvey Bernard Milk served in the Navy during the Korean War. He was a politician elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and the first openly gay elected official in the history of California.
Milk’s nephew, Stuart Milk, and Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro were present at the ceremony.

The 742-foot replenishment oiler ship is the second of six new vessels in the Navy’s fleet oiler program. The Navy plans to eventually have 20 more ships in the program.
Harvey Milk reportedly sexually assaulted a 16-year-old boy.
Nice work, woke Navy.
