The United Nations Postal Administration released six postage stamps on Thursday promoting equality for the LGBT community.

The stamps, designed by artist and UNPA art director Sergio Baradat, were revealed during a ceremony at the U.N. General Assembly. The New York Gay Men’s Chorus also gave a performance.

“We live in a world where even though [developed] nations have embraced marriage equality [and] LBGT equality, we still have a far, far, far way to go, but we are making some strides,” Baradat said in an interview according to UN News Centre.

The stamps feature two in English, two in French and two in German. They are available for purchase at the U.N. headquarters in New York, Vienna and Geneva and can be purchased online.

This is the first time UNPA has had LGBT-themed postage stamps. The stamps support the U.N. human rights office’s Free & Equal campaign, which works for equal treatment of the LGBT community.

  • This is a wonderful expression of inclusiveness. And a world uniting gesture. Isn’t that exactly what the UN is all about?

  • How are you “free and equal”? You are just as free as the guy next to you as you just always were. (unless you can come up with gay slavery in the history of humankind!)
    And how are you equal? Can you conceive naturally and offer your children family environment (where both parents are biological and not just partners)?
    No!
    So what is the charade about? Oh, I know! But do you?
    Look up: The Georgian Cornerstones
    They don’t want your kind! You think Christians hate you and those who promote homosexuality love you?! It’s the opposite! Those who promote homosexuality are those who hate you the most as their motto goes:
    “maintain population under 500,000,000”
    “leave the room for nature”!
    So they offer you what will destroy you just like offering an alcoholic all of the liquor his heart desires!
    I hope that non radicalized homosexuals can reflect on what is really going on and who is sponsoring the LGBT.
    These same people sponsoring the flood of Muslims immigrants into Europe and force-feed “multiculturalism” in order to create The New World Order where no one will have their identity but be a small part of a big machine that will serve the chosen ones!
    You are but a puppet in their game and so sad that you consider your enemies to be your friends!

    • Who the heck are you, commenting here on our LGBT media? This is a news site for LGBT and you obviously are not a member of our community. Please comment somewhere else.

    • cick on this rotten piece of sht name and see what she is – an extremist xtian hater White trash

      • Do you know that by your obnoxious behavior you just prove my point?!
        BTW, sadly I’m not a “white trash”. I was born and raised in an atheist Soviet Union where homosexuality was punishable either by prison time or insane asylum!
        So when you dare to call Christians who keep telling you that you were created in the image of God and that Christ can restore you, haters…….you are spitting in the well that you are drinking from!
        You get to exercise your non existent in the nature “human rights” because of Christ!
        Take Christ out of equation and you’ll be left with bunch of straight guys who can’t stand you!
        So without Christ you are back in an atheist set up, back in prisons or insane asylum!
        So my dear, be careful what you wish for!!!
        I said this before and I’ll say it again! Come to Christ and He will heal you!
