Love-Moji App Brings Interracial Couple Emoji to Your Phone
Emojis are a constant work in progress. To be fair, representation has come a long way: Just over the past year, we've seen professional emoji like the detective, construction worker, and farmer, just to name a few, available as females on iOS 10, and a handful of new LGBTQ-representative options like a rainbow flag and an extended range of family dynamics.
But there's one critical change that still needs to happen: an update that includes interracial couples.
For now, though, there's a temporary solution.
Dubbed Love-Moji, a new app allows users to share a range of interracial couple emojis that are either locked in a kiss or separated by a heart.
The app, which is free to use, was created to promote the upcoming drama "Loving," which features real-life interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving who became civil rights icons when they overturned a law banning their marriage in Virginia in 1967.
The keyboard extension, which can be downloaded on the app store and at VoteLoving.com, also features same-sex interracial couples.
Hopefully the next Unicode release will take note and include the same.
