    Original:


    Letter Writing Campaign For Harvey Milk US Stamp - would be the 1st openly gay person on a US stamp.

    It’s high time that the United States Postal Service designed a stamp to commemorate an activist from the LGBT community! Please join the effort to get a stamp made in honor of Harvey Milk. It takes a couple of years to succeed but we’d love to make it happen in time for what would have been Harvey Milk’s 80th birthday in 2012. Please join this campaign and make your voices heard!

    The process requires that LETTERS (yes, snail mail) be sent to the:
    Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee

    c/o Stamp Development

    U.S. Postal Service
    1735 North Lynn St, Suite 5013
    Arlington VA 22209-6432

    Great news but just to make a point of rhetoric:

    He'd only be the first LGBT official if he was also a lesbian.

    We benefit sometimes by the inclusion but other times by exclusivity.

    Reading that he's the first LBGT official in some way imparts the notion that we're done; we can go home now.

    But if I read that he's the first gay official, then I'd still be looking for the first lesbian, the first bisexual, the first transgendered. In such a case it might further the cause to better acknowledge a first for a gay man to realize in the same breath that we've still work to do.

    Indeed, not acknowledging this as a first for a gay man might be a bit of feminist bullshit because when those first pictures came out of the lesbian naval couple, I don't recall anyone calling that an LGBT kiss.

    Not trolling, but I have this one "friend" who said when he heard about the stamp that all the Harvey Milk stamps come with HIV in the glue.

    Also, he told me he was a sexual predator and a pedophile?
    Obvs, I dont believe the HIV part, but does anyone know if Harvey Milk was a sexual predator/pedophile?

    There seems to be quite a bit about it on the internets. I'm sure it could all be unsubstantiated, however does anyone know?

    Ugh. Have you been listening to Rush Limbaugh again? Purest right wing trolling. Even in liberal, communist San Francisco sexual predators and pedophiles will not get elected into City-council.

    I suggest that you all buy multiples of these stamps and use them on letters addressed to all your redneck politicians.

    Ironic that stamps are used less and less now.

    How do you put a stamp on an email?
