I’m sure a straight pride theme is right around the corner
It’s June 1 and all across Twitter, corporations are shoehorning the rainbow flag into their company logos in celebration of Pride. This month-long parade of everything fabulous and fierce is the one time a year when gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders, and all the other letters of the alphabet soup that is the LGBTTQQIAAP community stop body shaming each other and instead express love and pride without fear — so long as they do it in a major metropolitan area that’s cool with the gays. Sorry Arlington queers.
But the pandering isn’t limited to redesigned Twitter handles. This year we’re also getting Pride Apple Watch faces, Pride H&M clothing made by woefully underpaid foreigners, and a free Pride “For All the Players” theme for your PlayStation 4.
I’m more of a bear pride flag man myself, but even the breeders on staff were gushing about how good this looks. Even if it wasn’t for Pride, that classic rainbow design invokes memories of the old Ljn and Atari logos. It’s endlessly classic, like the Pride flag itself, and when I get my ass home after work tonight it’ll be my new PS4 theme.
