After Tinder started a petition last year to make emojis more inclusive by representing couples of different races, the emoji creator agreed to consider it in the nearest future. More than 50,000 people joined Tinder’s campaign, leading the Unicode Consortium to announce that right in the nearest rollout this autumn there will be mixed-raced same-sex couples among the emojis. Tinder’s chief marketing officer Jenny Campbell responded to the news by saying that Tinder advocates for all people being free to love whomever they want and to live however they want, and it all deserves being represented, in part via emojis . “The success of our Interracial Couple Emoji campaign shows how powerful the voices are of the more than 50,000 people who joined our cause by signing our petition,” she stated, “Together, we affected change and ensured visual representation for interracial couples around the world. I couldn’t be more proud of this incredibly positive outcome”
