To mark LGBTQ Pride Month, Twitter today brought back the hugely popular Pridemojis in 15 different languages.

Last year, the hashtag #LoveWins and #LoveIsLove auto populated with a rainbow heart. This year, #Pride2017, #PrideIsHappening and #LoveIsLove will automatically populate a new Pridemoji. These hashtags were translated into the most popular languages on Twitter, including Japanese, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, Turkish, French, Russian, UK English, Indonesian, Korean, German, Italian, Thai, Dutch and Simplified Chinese.

LGBTQ Pride Month coincides with the anniversary of the famous Stonewall Riots that occurred in 1969 in New York City. Exactly one year later, the first pride marches took place in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles to commemorate this brave stand against injustice.

Now, pride events are held annually across the world and in cities large and small. For some people, it is the only time they can be out and proud in their community. Pride festivals and parades celebrate the progress made by the LGBTQ community, but are also opportunities to acknowledge the distance we still have to go to achieve full equality.

Social media platforms like Twitter are a way to celebrate, unite and highlight the LGBTQ community year round.

Twitter is a strong advocate for the LGBTQ community and has spoken out against several pieces on anti-LGBTQ legislation. Most recently, Twitter joined two separate amicus briefs in support of Gavin Grimm, a transgender boy who filed suit against the school board alleging it violated Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 by denying him use of the boy’s restroom. Twitter received a 100 on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index, which is the national benchmarking tool on corporate policies and practices pertinent LGBTQ employees.

Below are the following hashtags that will populate with a Pridemoji:
