Gay & Lesbian History on Stamps. Website/Facebook/Meetings

Post by jps55liquefy »

The objectives of Gay and Lesbian History on Stamps are to promote the interest in the collection, study and dissemination of knowledge of world-wide philatelic material that depicts:

1) Notable men & women and their contributions to society for whom historical evidence exists of homosexual or bisexual orientation
2) Mythology, historical events and ideas significant in the history of gay culture
3) Flora and fauna scientifically proven to having prominent homosexual behavior.

Even though emphasis is placed on the above aspects of stamp collecting, GLHS strongly encourages other philatelic endeavors.

Please visit our website for more information, including journals since 1982(!) and a membership application:

London 2020 International Stamp Exhibition, Wednesday, May 6, 10:00am to 11:50am

Sadly, we will not be meeting in Hartford in August because the Great American Stamp Show 2020 has been cancelled.

It is likely that we will meet during the Great American Stamp Show 2021 in Rosemont, Illinois (not far from Chicago's O'Hare airport), scheduled for August 12 to 15.
