Its a fine idea and I'd love to promote it but don't you think perhaps someone should update the stamp image? First class postage is 44 cents now ya know.

I am disappointed, that the consideration for the stamp... does not include my iconic image of Harvey Milk... that introduced Harvey Nationally 5 months before he was elected. For the history of that image visit
It's not a painting... it's the real thing... plus I was a friend of Harvey Milk and been involved in gay rights since 1977

The image was created by artist Jeff Leff sometime in the late 80s. Here's an article about it:

I would like to thank the Task Force for stepping up to help in this effort. But the need to give credit where credit is due for this effort. I started this effort over a year ago on Facebook. The Task force does great work, but please give credit where credit is due.
