Austria’s Gays Have a Cute New Stamp to Mail In Their ‘Registered Partnership’ Papers

In what’s believed to be a world first, the postal service in Austria, where gay marriage is illegal but “registered partnerships” are available to gays, will issue the first stamp to commemorate gay pride, arriving on Vienna’s 15th annual gay pride celebration. The stamp is worth 72 cents, reads “rainbow parade,” and will be available July 3 — approximately two years after all the world’s gays ditched that wretched institution known as “snail mail” and began sending their pool party invites via services like PaperlessPost. But still, it’s a nice gesture.
