June is officially Pride Month. The President has proclaimed it so, (and if he hadn’t, we’d just celebrate anyway.)
To mark the occasion, Facebook, which often has a hard time deciding whether a same-sex kiss should be censored or not, has offered an olive branch of sorts, and reaffirmed their good intentions toward the gay community by creating a number of LGBT emoticons.
“We’re celebrating Pride by adding these free Facebook Messenger stickers to the Sticker Store.” The Facebook Diversity Spokesman told NewNowNext. “We see this as one more way we can make Facebook a place where people can express their authentic identity. Happy Pride!”
So what’s your pick?
I admit I am partial to the football player and his boyfriend, but the leather- man walking his leather-dog was a close second.
