Activists Campaigning For U.S. Postal Service Issued Harvey Milk Stamp

Harvey Milk stamp

What a great idea!

In an effort to honor the assassinated San Francisco politician and activist Harvey Milk, LGBT activists are campaigning for the U.S. Postal Service to issue a stamp honoring the iconic city supervisor.

Those close to the project think Harvey would love the idea, while finding it hilarious.

Civil rights activist David Mixner, who fully supports the national campaign, wrote on his blog:

“He would get that twisted smile of his and say, ‘Hell, imagine all those straights having to lick my backside to send a piece of mail.’”

Ha! We can't imagine him NOT loving this idea and therefore, we fully support it!

The campaign to put the historical civil and gay rights activists face on a stamp has already garnered support from California assembly speaker John Pérez, Oscar winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black (who wrote Milk), and the Reverend Troy Perry.

    have they put michael jackson on a U.S. postal stamp yet? I don't know how long you have to be dead before they consider you, but they will put almost ANYONE on a stamp now, THEY ARE LAYING OFF PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THE INTERNET and STAMP COLLECTING IS $$$. Big $$$$$$$$$$$$$. Hey Mario, start ahead of the post office and print your own stamps with his pic on, better yet, put YOUR HEAD on the stamps, it is legal, go to the post office site.

    I see no reason why a man who was an "activist" or "icon" for a very small special interest group should have his image on a stamp. If it happens, I won't buy the stamps, even if there are no others to buy. I don't buy stamps as it is; the USPS gives shitty service, is way over-priced, and I pay my bills online.

    openly discussing who you prefer to have sex with should not be a qualifier for being on a postage stamp…

    I don't gay people are a "small, special interest group" that's quite offensive.

    My university, in Buckinghamshire, UK, has a monthly gay night which is named 'Milk' , I assume after Harvey, so we feel the effect of him across the pond :)

    I'v also seen the boipic and read about him and found his story more than moving.

    We have our queen on most stamps and I feel more emotionally connected to Harvey Milk than her and I'm not even gay.

    Wow Perez, you poked fun at Canada for issuing a stamp for the Royal couple's visit to Canada (in the original post you wrote - and proceeded to deleting bc ppl called you on it) but now "its great"? Your such a hypocrite sometimes, its only good when it suits your needs. All that being said, congrats to Harvey, he was iconic and i do believe it is more than deserved. All the work he has done is remarkable. Another step in the right direction for all LGBT.

    Re: La Garse
    If you don't see how important and BIG Harvey Milk was then pick up a book and educate yourself.
    If you don't buy stamps then ssshhhhhh.

    Re: so what

    Don't lick it; you'll get an STD.

    Milk was an awesome man, regardless of your stance on his personal preferences. He helped rebuild one of the largest cities in the world.

    Hot damn, aren't there more important thing activists could be campaigning for? Come on now, no one mails letters anymore anyway. Let's focus on some real issues people!
