Why this petition matters

Started by Fullscreen Inc.

You, Person who uses emojis! - Read This:

It’s now been over 50 years since the Stonewall Riots, the beginning of the modern LGBTQIA+ civil rights movement in America, and to celebrate, we think it’s about time the world had a better understanding of the beautiful gender, sexual, and romantic identities that make up all those letters (and every identity hidden beneath the + sign too!). And what better way than with the most universal language - emojis.

This petition is to encourage the social media platforms that design these symbols to add LGBTQIA+ pride flag emojis. We’re talking about the bisexual flag, the lesbian flag, the nonbinary flag, the asexual flag, the aromantic flag, and many more. Most of the time, companies wait until the governing emoji board Unicode approves certain ideas. But that can take years and it doesn’t need to be that way. And that’s because platforms can also design emojis independently!

For example, if you copy + paste the Transgender flag formula from Emojipedia into a status on some social media platforms right now, you’ll get a single pink, blue, and white transgender flag! Once the major emoji publishers all agree that a certain formula equals a certain pride flag, you would be able to use it anywhere!

Sign this petition now to show these companies you want these Pride Flag emojis! Show them how much you want to use these emojis to better express and celebrate your identity and the identities of others! Show them what Pride in your identity looks like!!

Awesome Companies That Can Make This Change HAPPEN - Read This:

You’ve all designed emojis, and yet the rainbow flag and transgender flag are, at the time of writing, the only LGBTQ+ flags universal to all of you. Let’s add more together! Don’t you think there should be lesbian and bisexual pride flags? Wouldn’t it be great if, through emojis, you all contributed to conversations about what it means to be nonbinary, intersex, asexual, and so many more identities?

We know it’s easier and simpler to wait for Unicode’s blessing before designing new emojis, but that’s why this petition exists–to band you all together to bring change sooner. We’ve created this LGBTQ+ pride flag emoji formula guide that you can follow to make sure your emojis are compatible with each other!

Together you can show some much needed love to the LGBTQ+ community and bring more recognition to these identities! We’d love if you signed the petition too :)
