Activists who launched a campaign back in 2011 to have Harvey Milk’s image on a United States Postal Service stamp got their wish today as the White House will hold a special dedication ceremony at 5 P.M. to reveal a stamp commemorating the San Francisco LGBT activist on what would have been his 84th birthday. The “Forever” stamp honors the San Francisco politician who is largely credited as the first openly gay person to be elected to public office. According to the SF Gate: “Also attending will be Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., the first openly lesbian U.S. senator, Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga, a leader in the civil rights movement, Deputy Postmaster General Ronald Stroman and Stuart Milk, the slain supervisor’s nephew and founder and president of the Harvey Milk Foundation.”

Already, CBS reported, people are lining up in San Francisco to buy the stamp.
