Facebook has launched a number of gay pride icons for users to celebrate Pride season
Facebook has released a number of free LGBT-themed emoticons – featuring leathermen, a disco man and two sailors and one that looks like RuPaul for gay pride season.
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!’
The emoticons can be used within Facebook’s messager. You can install the stickers through the emoticon menu.
Earlier in the year, Facebook transformed its gender reporting feature – allowing users to define their gender to around 50 different gender expressions.
