The Transgender Pride Flag Emoji is now in Unicode Emoji 13.0.
If Emoji is seen by many as the evolution of human language, it’s important that it represent humanity.
After Capital TransPride 2017, both the Chair, Bianca Rey (@BiancaRey), and I were frustrated by our inability to share transgender pride using our mobile devices. A difference between us was that Bianca wanted to do something about that, so we did.
2 ½ years, multiple proposals, a global movement with many amazing collaborators, and a feature-length documentary later, the wish has been granted.
It’s one of the things a doctor does – help evolve our communication so that lives can be saved.
This is probably the most documented emoji proposal in human history, and for a worthy cause – humanity.
See everyone at @DCTransPride365 in May, 2020.
