Because there is no trans flag in the Unicode emoji list, a group of us in Washington, DC, with Capital Trans Pride decided to build a sticker set for transgender communities and allies everywhere. Download the iMessage App!
The transgender pride flag signifies visibility in a world that's learning to love better. A sticker may seem like a small innovation but it means a lot to a community that's been marginalized.
This year at Capital Trans Pride, we lamented that the only emojis we could send to each other are the rainbow pride flag.
"My reason for wanting a trans flag emoji is so that a trans individual can feel a sense of belonging and visibility when using technology to communicate."
