Austrian Post and Pride organisers are really set to stamp out homophobia this year, as they produce a gay postal stamp to coincide with their gay pride event.
Vienna's 15th Rainbow Parade is set to take place on June 25th and to help with the celebrations a gay stamp has been designed to go on sale in a bid to really stamp down the occasion.
The stamps are set to go on sale on the day of the parade at 55-euro-cents and will be valid for use on July 3rd. The cost of the stamp, which was designed by gay activist Christian Hoegl, is the original cost for a letter or postcard to be sent within the country.
According to Pride Source, Jona Solomon, co-president of HOSI Wien, or Homosexual Initiative Vienna said about the idea: "To our knowledge this is the first time in the world that a postal authority is issuing a special stamp on a gay/lesbian occasion,"
HOSI Secretary General Kurt Krickler also was reported to have said: "Austrian Post is again writing philatelic history with this stamp. We hope that many postal authorities in the world will follow and dedicate stamps to LGBT themes."
