Gaypride Emote Meaning
The Gaypride emote has a pretty simple meaning – it is used by members of the LGBTQ community on Twitch who want to identify themselves as a part of it.
It shows their sexual orientation, and it can be used by Twitch members worldwide, but you may sometimes see it as a sign of support to the community, too, especially during Gay pride month.
Even though the LGBT community is not that numerous on Twitch, and you won’t see too many channels dedicated to them, there is still some gay community emotes you may not recognize.
If you were not sure what the Gaypride emote meant, when, and how it is used, then we’ve got you covered!
When To Use Gaypride Emote?
The Gay pride emotes are available all the time, and while you can make them a part of your Twitch persona and keep them next to your username all the time, you can only add them during pride month or when there are gay events around you.
June is pride month, so millions of people on Twitch use this emote to show they are also part of pride celebration worldwide and are all in for gay liberation.
This emote is also frequently used when there is an LGBTQ pride parade in major cities like New York City or San Francisco, so that you may see it occasionally in this case too.
In general, members add it only during pride month to show they have dignity and pride, even if they are gay, lesbian, or bisexual, and it can also help like-minded members of Twitch to connect.
The emote is frequently used during pride month by random streamers, too, even if they are straight, and that is always a way to show significant support to members of the LGBTQ community and show them they’re not alone.
You can use it however and whenever you want, as long as it doesn’t have a bad intention and isn’t used as a way to insult someone.
Story Behind Gaypride Emote
The Gay pride emotes were at the beginning available only during the pride month and popular gay festivals, but from 2019 they were made a permanent addition to Twitch emotes.
Twitch recognized how important it is to show support to the gay community, and they decided to add emotes for homosexual, bisexual, lesbian, and trans members of the community.
They also add some new gay emotes every year, usually during the summer and pride month.
How Can I Get The Gaypride Emote?
The Gaypride emotes are a part of regular Twitch emotes, and they are available throughout the year, even when there isn’t a gay pride parade.
There are 25 of these emotes, but they are not free, so you will need to invest some money if you want to add them to your account.
However, a certain amount of money is donated to different organizations and helps support the Pride march, so you are still doing much for the LGBT pride this way!
