Behold! The Harvey Milk Commemorative Stamp!

Harvey_milk_stamp Stamp News just revealed the design for the U.S. commemorative "forever stamp" honoring San Francisco political figure and gay rights activist Harvey Milk.

According to

The stamp will be issued on Harvey Milk Day, May 22, in a location or locations yet to be determined. Both Washington, D.C., and San Francisco are potential first-day cities. U.S. Postal Service officials announced the stamp subject in October 2013 but have not formally revealed the image.

As we reported last fall, "the campaign advocating for a stamp in Milk's honor began back in 2009… [this] stamp will be the first to feature an openly LGBT elected official."

The Washington Blade also has an in-depth story on the contentious campaign to get the stamp made in the first place.
