AS reported earlier, in celebration of June 28, the official LGBTQ Pride Day, Correos has created a special rainbow stamp in order to give a public tribute to this community.
The stamp also has a special mention to a street in Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol, as this is known as the Spanish Stonewall. During the Franco regime, this street was a place of refuge for members of the LGBTQ community and more recently, in 2019, it was declared a Place of Historical Memory.
The same day it released this special ‘Pride Pack,’ the leader of Spain’s far-right party, Vox, tweeted, “There is no money for respirators, nor for ERTEs. This is a criminal government” alongside a picture of the newly released stamp. This tweet clearly hints that he believes this is a waste of government money which would be better invested elsewhere.
However, Correos is proud to announce that their pride pack was such a “success” that within the first 24 hours, all initial investment was recovered through sales.
