New One Dollar Canadian Coin Features Two Men Kissing

Canada has unveiled a new one dollar commemorative coin that features two men kissing.

The Royal Canadian Mint said the new coin represented “a key milestone for lesbian, gay, transgender, queer and two-spirited people.”

Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau insisted that progress in terms of ‘LGBTQ2’ rights was not complete.

“They recognize, as we should all recognize, that we are not at the end of this path,” he said. “We have much more to do.”
