Facebook is celebrating Pride month by launching a series of LGBT-themed emoticons for Facebook Messenger.
The ‘Pride’ pack of 28 emoji include various romantic couples and same-sex parents, as well as marchers in a Pride parade, a cyclist in an AIDS Ride, gay sailors hugging, a supportive dad with his queer son, and a leather daddy walking his leather puppy.
They can be installed via the Facebook emoticon menu.
Facebook has made a serious effort to be inclusive of the LGBT community, from supporting the LGBTQ@facebook affinity group and offering some 56 gender options on profiles to uploading a “I Feel Pride” emoticon after the Supreme Court ruling striking down DOMA.
A Facebook Diversity spokesperson said: “We’re celebrating Pride by adding these free Facebook Messenger stickers to the Sticker Store. We see this as one more way we can make Facebook a place where people can express their authentic identity. Happy Pride!”
Okay, but that drag queen looks a lot like a certain Supermodel of the World.
