As it stands, pride emoji are severely lacking. There are only two options: 🏳️🌈 and 🏳️⚧️. This is not inclusive enough to represent the LGBTQIA+ community, a diverse peoople across the world. As such, we have started a campaign for #BiFlagEmoji and #AceFlagEmoji. Read our press release.
#AceFlagEmoji: International Asexuality Day
This April 6, 2021 is International Asexuality Day. How will you celebrate? It would be nice if there was an emoji to help with that - unfortunately, we’re forced to use 🖤🐘🤍💜. It’s 2021; it’s time our emoji is inclusive of our diverse identities. So we can represent ourselves all the time - with a single emoji.
#BiFlagEmoji: Over a year in the making
Over a year ago, our campaign proposal to Unicode was submitted and promptly rejected, without a reason. Who’s Unicode, you ask? The Unicode Consortium sets the standard for how computers encode text, so that different systems and devices can work together. Their role also includes approving emoji proposals. Unfortunately, all requests for new emoji must go through them - and in cases like ours, sometimes they reject sensible proposals without a reason.
