We're pretty sure you've heard of or used emoji's before without even knowing it, they those little clip art style pictures that you can add into your text message instead of writing out the whole word. Emojis have become extremely mainstream over the last decade with major social platforms, like Facebook and Instagram, providing a plethora of options to choose from. The written word has become outdated on these platforms it seems.

Why are emoji's important?

Emoji's have become such an important way of conversing in modern day culture, a quick and easy way of getting your point in as few words as possible. In today's world of "I'm always busy" we're left with very little time to stop and smell the roses, let alone reply to a long-winded text message. 

This used to take up a fair bit of time, because the number of emojis weren't sufficient to convey the meaning of what you were trying to get across in a message. That's all changed, with there being an emoji to cover almost every facet of life. You're off to nan's house, a simple two emoji can portray that clearly to the receiver. You're angry with someone, not to worry there's a "middle finger" emoji so you don't have to get into the nitty gritty of using words. 

Is there a Trans Flag emoji?

With this variety of emojis available to people all around the world, you’d expect there to be at least one for the transgender community and you’d be correct. The trans flag emoji was made available to most social media platforms and native devices in 2020, was it long overdue? Definitely. Are we upset about it? not anymore.

We’ve finally got a trans flag emoji to share, proudly, while enjoying back and fourths over text messages or other social media chats. We couldn’t be happier at this point, the trans flag emoji looks great. There’re a few variations across the different platforms, but overall, they look as good as an emoji can look.

Conclusion

It was a long wait for the transgender community to finally have their own emoji and this wasn’t made easier by having to watching so many other communities under the LGBT community receive their own emojis they could proudly stand behind. There was time where we had to be content with simply using the pride movement and while that was acceptable, it didn’t feel quite like it was ours. In 2020, we finally got our very own trans flag emoji and not just for one device or social media platform but across virtually all of them. The emoji looks fantastic, is it perfect? No, it’s not, but no emoji is and the trans flag emoji looks great. It’s captured the pink, white and light blue of our flag beautifully.
