This month, Facebook launched a series of 28 new LGBT-themed emoticons.
The ‘Pride’ Pack came with President Obama’s proclamation declaring June LGBT pride month.
The collection features a range of pride icons including married women in wedding dresses, gay sailors, drag queens, rainbows and a leather daddy with his puppy.
“We’re celebrating Pride by adding these free Facebook Messenger stickers to the Sticker Store,” a Facebook Diversity spokesperson said, according to NewNowNext. “We see this as one more way we can make Facebook a play where people can express their authentic identity. Happy Pride!”
If you want to view the full collection, go onto Facebook, open up a message and click on the smiley face button on the bottom right hand of the messenger box. Click on the shopping cart icon, and the collection should be at the top.
Facebook has always tried to promote acceptance as was seen when it added over 50 new gender options earlier this year. Also, in June 2013, Facebook added a “feeling pride” Emoji to its status bar in June.
