But what about Rainbow Flags?

Thank you Jokie.  Love the Harvey Milk stamp.

PS: I just received your postcard yesterday, and I'll blog it separately.  This Mail Art is one of a kind and needed its own blog.

Amazing, I just saw a film called; "Kill the messenger", and your message rings true.

Oh, I forgot to mention that both versions of my poster, the 1989 and 2015 versions, have more or less the same message: When a flag becomes more important than the people it is intended to represent, it is the flag that must go, not the people! O:) <3

Very well thought out Mail Art.  Normally I just cut & glue mindlessly.  Diversity is good.

Thanks again & your post arrived, but it will take me a while to figure out how to blog it.

I did the poster originally back in 1989, at the height of the AIDS crisis and amid discontent in the US that led to flag burning. I decided to resurrect the image, but replace the former indistinct scribble flag with an image of the Dildoisis flag by gay UK artist, Paul Coombs. This version, of course, protests ISIS' persecution of LGBT people. O:) <3
