The US Navy christened and launched a new ship Saturday named after LGBT rights pioneer Harvey Milk, the Associated Press reported. . .
The new vessel was launched in San Diego Bay Saturday, according to the AP. The ship ceremoniously entered the water after a bottle of champagne was smashed on the bow by former Navy officer Paula M. Neira, clinical program director for the John Hopkins Center for Transgender Health. Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro and Milk’s nephew, Stuart, attended the event. . .
Harvey Milk served four years in the Navy before he was forced to leave because of his homosexuality.
Today we christened the USNS Harvey Milk (T-AO 206)! This great ship honors #NavyDiver & #CivilRights activist Harvey Milk who was forced out of the service due to unfair policies. Because of him, today our #LGBTQ #Sailors & #Marines serve honorably as their genuine selves. pic.twitter.com/HvOgpmQAVL
