Dozens of countries are meeting at the New York headquarters this week for the general assembly. 

The LGBT core group of the United Nations unveiled a rainbow walkway Sunday named #Path2Equality outside of the general assembly building on 46th Street.

Ambassador Samantha Power and Dutch Foreign Minister Bert Koenders, along with other members of the LGBT Core Group, OHCHR, Human Rights Watch, and the city of New York revealed the crosswalk, intended as a symbol of the U.N.'s continued progress toward welcoming LGBT issues into the sphere of discussion.

"A lot of world leaders, ministers, and even heads of state walk into the UN this way, and they will cross the crosswalk and hopefully many of them will know and will appreciate the spirit in which it has been laid down," Power said.

The #Path2Equality will remain in place from Sept. 18 to 24.
