In a statement released last week (“A drag queen was behind USPS Harvey Milk stamp“) the American Family Association instructed its membership to refuse delivery of mail stamped with the new commemorative Harvey Milk stamp (I had no idea that there even was one. Thanks, AFA!), and if given them at the post office to ask for a United States flag stamp instead.
Choosing a stamp is your choice, and you can of course use it for anything, like sending a certified letter . You know: the kind that requires a signature. For only a couple of dollars more, you can receive an email that the letter was received and a copy of the individual’s signature – all for less than $6. (If you need to use that form, start over again with your own zip code.)
If you want to send a letter to the American Family Association expressing your feelings regarding this and other actions taken on behalf of you and your family, you may do so at the following address. It’s the only one for correspondence that I could find on their site, but it’s for charitable donations only.

PO Drawer 2440,
Tupelo, MS 38803
When you send a certified letter to a PO Box, the recipient is presented with a card that he or she must sign before they receive the item.
Be sure to take extra steps to ensure that the AFA doesn’t think that the envelope you use contains a check: The AFA depends on donations, and as long as they know your certified letter doesn’t contain part of the $19 million that keeps them afloat year to year, then you won’t be putting them in the moral dilemma of having to open a letter with the Harvey Milk stamp on it (or whatever stamp you choose) or risk throwing away money.
Alternatively, you might use their street address, but I don’t know if they accept mail there.

The American Family Association put out a press release this week with the title, “A drag queen was behind USPS Harvey Milk stamp.” After moving past the fact that a “self-described drag queen (a biological man with implanted breasts) and former transsexual prostitute” had lobbied to get Milk on the postage, the group let its views on San Francisco Board of Supervisors member, who was assassinated along with the city’s mayor in 1978, be known:
“Honoring predator Harvey Milk on a U.S. postage stamp is disturbing to say the least. Harvey Milk was a very disreputable man and used his charm and power to prey on young boys with emotional problems and drug addiction. He is the last person we should be featuring on a stamp.”
