Facebook is introducing LGBT themed emojis just in time for Pride.
In a statement that Facebook released regarding the launching of the LGBT stickers, the social network explained, “Facebook is 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.”
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.
“We see this as one more way we can make Facebook a place where people can express their authentic identity,” Facebook said.
Illinois became the latest U.S. state to legalize gay marriage on Sunday.
