harvey_milk_stamp.gifGreat news: the Harvey Milk Foundation reported today that the United States Postal Service will release a Harvey Milk commemorative postage stamp next year.

From the foundation's Facebook page:

Breaking! It is official! The USPS will confirm this week that my uncle, Harvey Milk will be commemorated on a 2014 US postage stamp. Another first! My deep gratitude to everyone that supported this effort! More details including the image to come via USPS soon! "Hope Will Never Be Silent" and will be on millions of letters soon!

It will be the first U.S. postage stamp to feature an openly LGBT elected official.
