Activists are hailing the appointment of a UN Independent Expert on the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people as a milestone.

The UN’s become the first institution ever to issue a special collection of stamps in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights.
That’s according to the head of global issues at the UN Human Rights Office.
Progress has been made on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) issues, but more work remains to be done in the coming year.
