Pride Month is a time to recognize the impact that the LGBTQIA+ community has on our society, and here at Snap we’re celebrating it in a number of ways, both for our Snapchat community and our internal team.
On Snapchat, we teamed up with Patrick Starr, beauty mogul and digital creator, to launch his #GRWMPRIDE Hosted-Spotlight Challenge. From June 1 through June 13, Patrick wants Snapchatters in the US to show how they get ready for Pride on Spotlight for a chance to win a share of $10,000. Snapchatters can submit their videos here, via the Spotlight Trending Page.
In addition to showing your Pride on Spotlight, Snapchatters can also express themselves this month and beyond with new Stickers and Bitmoji looks! Gear up for colorful celebrations in a new Bitmoji Pride Tank Top, and Bitmoji Pride stickers and pronoun stickers will also be available to share with friends. Tons of Pride Lenses are also available, with a new Lens launching in the coming days.
On Snap Map, look out for designated stories from Pride events around the world, and carry the Pride flag with you as you share your location with friends.
And throughout the month, Snap is holding space for our team members to reflect on the community’s history by hosting an array of in-person and virtual events like the Pulse Nightclub Remembrance Reflection Council, Building an Inclusive Household for LGBTQIA+ Children panel, and a Drag King Performance featuring Landon Cider. .
Happy Pride Snapchatters!
