Glo Taylor from Look Models SF modeled Amsterdam's Rainbow Dress during a ceremony in the City Hall Rotunda Monday, May 22 in observance of Harvey Milk Day. The dress's skirt includes flags of all the countries that have criminalized homosexuality. When the law is changed, the country's flag is replaced with a rainbow flag, as is evident at lower left, which represents Belize. A delegation of human rights and LGBT activists from Amsterdam are visiting San Francisco this week, including Vice Mayor Simone Kukeheim and Arnout van Krimpen of the Rainbow Dress Foundation. LGBT local officials who were on hand included Supervisor Jeff Sheehy, former state Senator Mark Leno, and mayoral adviser Theresa Sparks. Stuart Milk, the gay nephew of Harvey Milk, was also in attendance and gave some gifts to the Amsterdam delegation.
