UPDATE – 29 JULY 2014 – The Harvey Milk Commemorative Stamp (right) was designed by Antonio Alcala and issued by the United States Post Office on 22 May 2014. It can be ordered here.
There is a HARVEY MILK NATIONAL STAMP CAMPAIGN. If you support the idea you should write to:
Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee
C/O Stamp Development
U.S. Postal Service
1735 North Lynn St
Arlington VA 22209-6432
On the one hand, Harvey Milk is deserving of commemoration in every possible way. On the other, the Post Office is a giant tree-eating monster. Couldn’t we name a forest after Milk?
One would not need to actually use the stamps. One could simply collect them. But apparently the only way to petition for their creation is to mail something.
