The U.S. Postal Service will dedicate its Harvey Milk stamp during a ceremony at the White House on Thursday, the day the stamp is released. Mr Milk won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977, becoming one of the nation’s first openly gay elected officials.
The Postal Service said in a statement that Mr Milk’s achievements “gave hope and confidence to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community in the United States and elsewhere at a time when the community was encountering widespread hostility and discrimination.”
