LGBTQ Stamp Which Leader of Spain’s Vox Slandered is Already a Complete ‘Success’

The newly created rainbow stamp issued by Spain’s Correos was heavily slandered by Vox’s leader Santiago Abascal. However, the stamp which aims to celebrate LGBTQ Pride has already been labelled a complete ‘success.’

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.
