The United Nations Postal Administration has released a series of six new stamps, celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality for the first time.

The six commemorative stamps were unveiled in a ceremony at the UN general assembly building in New York as part of the UN Free & Equal campaign, a global UN campaign for LGBT equality which aims to promote fair treatment of the LGBT community.

The stamps were designed by artist, Sergio Baradat, who said, “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.”

Available to buy in English, French and German, the stamps can be bought at the UN Headquarters in New York, Geneva and Vienna or online.
