Originally printed 5/29/2014 (Issue 2222 - Between The Lines News)
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The post office in San Francisco's Castro District is selling more stamps than usual now that a neighborhood icon is the face of the nation's newest Forever Stamp.
The U.S. Postal Service on Thursday started issuing stamps honoring the late San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, who was one of the first openly gay men elected to public office and represented the Castro before he was assassinated in 1978.
AIDS Memorial Quilt creator Cleve Jones, who was an aide to Milk, and screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, who won an Oscar for the 2008 movie "Milk," joined dozens of people who lined up at the Castro post office to buy the new stamp.
Thursday would have been Milk's 84th birthday. He and San Francisco Mayor George Moscone were shot to death at City Hall by Dan White, a former city supervisor.
