Editor's Pick

We might have a soon-to-be-released stamp of Harvey Milk here in the U.S., but nobody can beat Finland when it comes to being open and proud about gay culture. This Fall, Finland will debut a stamp collection featuring Tom of Finland, an artist who was known for his gay porn illustrations.

They are self adhesive -- no licking required.

The Finnish artist was known for homoerotic drawings featuring strong masculine figures. The artist will also have an exhibition at Finland's Postal Museum.
