On Pride Day in 1989, the Greenwich Village, Stonewall Station Post Office offered patrons a postmark reading "Stonewall Sta. 20 years 1969-1989 Lesbian & Gay Pride June 25, 1989 New York NY 10199" along side a Keith Haring image "Heritage of Pride." Over 15,000 postmarks were applied that day. This is the "first ever gay-related U.S. Post Office cancelation"
