Victory! Interracial Couple Emoji Is A Go!
Mar 5, 2019 —
VICTORY: In 2018, Tinder launched a petition to urge Unicode to create a new emoji representing interracial couples. As they said in their petition, “While emojis for people of color and same-sex couples both became a reality in 2015, one group of people is still excluded from emoji representation: interracial couples. Isn’t time all love was represented?” Well, one year and 50,000+ signatures later, Tinder and Change.org are excited to announce that Unicode has finally accepted the Interracial Couple Emoji proposal and is officially releasing the artwork for all of their new 2019 emojis, including Tinder’s interracial couples! This victory is thanks to the more than 50,000 Change.org users who signed the petition! “Tinder advocates for the freedom of people to live how they want to live and love who they want to love,” said Jenny Campbell, CMO, Tinder. “The success of our Interracial Couple Emoji campaign shows how powerful the voices are of the more than 50,000 people who joined our cause by signing our petition; together, we effected change and ensured visual representation for interracial couples around the world.I couldn’t be more proud of this incredibly positive outcome.”
