It's not too late to lick Freddy Mercury's backside!

quote:
Paul Hennefield may be sporting a rather unusual haircut, but the co-founder of the Gay and Lesbian History on Stamps Club is also bringing a truly amazing gay and lesbian philatelic collection to the Web. I mean just look at these Freddie Mercury stamps from Turkmenistan, for example. Paul's Gay Stamps run the gamut from Greek Mythology to Modern Times and given the LGBT context Hennefield's made an ordinarily benign subject into something very interesting.

I don't see that story at your link, Heph. Did you post the permalink, or just the main page link?

Oh, oh! I'm sorry, I see it now. I was looking at the main blog entries.

What an amazing collection. And who knew that Alexander Hamilton was gay?

Being closeted, he sublimated his sexual energy into pistol practice. Not quite enough, unfortunately for him.

If gaymers, then why not homophilatelists, I suppose. Nerd culture and queer culture want for such improbable collisions.
