When the co-owners of the first gay bar in the southern Croatian city of Dubrovnik were considering what to call their establishment, they found inspiration from California.
Milk, which opened May 7 in the historic center of the popular tourist destination on the Adriatic Sea, takes its name from the late gay San Francisco supervisor Harvey Milk."The name was inspired by Harvey Milk, an American politician and activist who fought for the rights of homosexuals," co-owner Vicko Lazo told the publication Slobodna Dalmacija. "Milk is the first public homosexual to be elected to public office in California or San Francisco.
After all, the name is effective, easy to remember for both locals and foreigners."Milk, who would have celebrated his 92nd birthday Sunday, May 22, continues to inspire people across the globe 45 years after his historic election to a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
