QUEER ISSUE 2014: Which queer icon should next appear on a stamp?


On May 22, the US Postal Service released the groundbreaking Harvey Milk stamp. Earlier this month we asked our readers, "Which US queer icon should next appear on a postage stamp?" We received a flood of answers, and while we have our own dream mail models — Sylvia Rivera, Barbara Gittings, Jose "Empress I" Sarria, Thom Gunn, Vicki Marlane — we chose the most popular readers' picks for a little "Forever" fantasy fulfillment. (Maybe some of these won't end up as fantasies after all!)
