Harvey Milk is the first openly gay person honored on U.S. postage. Or is he? Because of the issuance of the Harvey Milk stamp, I began to wonder if there were any other LGBTQ people on U.S. stamps. I made it my personal mission to painstakingly research every person ever featured on a U.S. postage stamp to determine whether or not they were LGBTQ (based on personal admission or factual evidence from more than one source), and whether or not they were LGBTQ veterans of the U.S. military. Weeks of researching over 1,100 people concluded with a total of 73 LGBTQ persons featured on U.S. postage, 16 of whom were veterans (or received military honors), and one strong early LGBTQ ally. This book is a compilation of my research from the very first postage stamp issued in 1847, through the year 2016.
