June is Pride month. As a part of the annual celebrations, companies are rolling out products and features that mark their solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ community. For instance, Google recently announced that Google Maps and Google Search will show gender-neutral washrooms in the US. Similarly, Xbox is marking the month by providing its game with a transgender character, Tell Me Why, free to all users on Xbox gaming consoles, Microsoft Store and Steam for the month of June. Similarly, Apple has launched an Apple Watch Pride Edition band and dynamic watch face Pride Edition Braided Solo Loop, Pride watch face, and Pride Edition Nike Sport Loop to mark the event.

These features, as we mentioned before, are aimed at supporting the LGBTQIA+ community.

Also, apps like Instagram and LinkedIn have already rolled out features on their platforms that enable users to add personal pronouns to their profile such that it is visible to all their followers or in the case of LinkedIn, their connections.
