The LBGTQ community on Facebook is an integral and celebrated part of the company, and swear by the importance of representation and having a community matters — whether that be LGBTQ people sharing photos that can change hearts and minds, or by using Facebook products, like Groups, to find a supportive network.
Today and in celebration of the kick off of Pride month in the US, the company is launching new ways for the LGBTQ Community on Facebook to express themselves and show their pride on Facebook, Messenger and Instagram. Facebook says they know and understand that people in the LGBTQ community on Facebook are supporting one another worldwide and year-round, which is why the company is making all of these effects available throughout the year.
Facebook Profile Frames Are Back
The popular Pride Profile Frames are back again. Check out facebook.com/profilepicframes and search “fbpride.” Choose a frame you like, reposition it and set how long you want to keep it on your profile. Then, click “Use as Profile Picture” to post. Your friends can see the frame and will also be given the option to try it too.
Express Yourself in Text Posts and Camera
You can also personalize your text posts, photos and videos and share your creation to Stories or News Feed. Check out Facebook’s Pride-themed text background, or swipe to the left of News Feed for Pride masks, effects, and frames in Camera, or the stickers icon to access Pride stickers.
Share Your Support in Messenger
During Pride month, you can add some love to your conversations with Pride-themed AR filters, frames and stickers in the Messenger Camera. You can use the camera to take a picture or video, customize it, and then send it to a friend or in a group chat. Messenger also has several sticker packs to help you share your support.
Get Inspired in Instagram
Mention your #rolemodel in your stories and share how they inspire you. You can also celebrate Pride with rainbows in type mode, stories stickers, live reactions and hashtags. Learn more about these features here.
