Interracial Emojis are the new addition to the commonly shared emoji images by social media users.
On October 4, Focus Features (Los Angeles, CA) made an announcement that the new LOVE-MOJI App has launched, which will give users the chance to use interracial couple emojis for the first time ever. The groundbreaking new app is inspired by Richard and Mildred Loving, a husband and wife who nearly fifty years ago showed us that love is stronger than hate and has the power to spark real change. In anticipation of Focus’s upcoming film about the couple, LOVING, users will be able to use this new keyboard extension on text and email, as well as platforms like Twitter and Facebook. While same-sex couples and individuals of different races have been represented as emoji’s in the past, interracial couples and families had not made their debut as emoji’s until now.
Download the LOVE-MOJI here: For iOS or For Google Play or visit your app store. Users can also visit VoteLoving.com for more info. See all of the emojis here. Focus has also teamed up with Twitter to create an emoji that celebrates interracial couples. On Twitter, using the hashtag #VoteLoving, #ThisisLoving, or #LovingMovie will automatically populate a interracial couple emoji, representing Mildred and Richard Loving.
In addition, during election season, Focus is encouraging everyone to show that simply conveying love can change the world one state at a time. Each day leading up to the election, LOVING’s social pages will share a story from each state about ordinary Americans conveying love that are helping to better the state of the world. Find out more by watching the #VoteLoving video. To see all the various stories and social posts about conveying love from across the country, as broken down by state, visit VoteLoving.com. LOVING, a Focus Features release, opens in select cities on November 4th and expand across the country later in November.
