For many people, it’s time to remember a key rule of Pride month: showing support for the LGBTQ community by plastering rainbows.

Pride-themed products and symbols have seen an explosion in popularity, and now between stickers, T-shirts, buttons, bags, flags and magnets, you can quite literally show your stripes anywhere.

That goes for your digital life, too. Facebook in particular makes it easy to add a little rainbow spirit to your profile.

Just click on your profile picture and it will give you the option of adding a Pride-themed rainbow frame or filter.

From here, you can browse different options and use the preview feature to test out each look. Once you find your keeper, click “use as profile picture” to finalize the edit.

If you don’t love any of Facebook’s Pride features, there are a handful of third-party apps that will help you put custom Pride filters over your favorite photo, then upload it to your profile.

These include: Celebrate Pride: Rainbow Your Life, Pride Filter and Make Me Pride (Flag). They work on Instagram or Twitter, too.

Instagram also offers Pride-themed emojis, GIFs and stickers to add to your Story posts.

Another way of showing support for LGBTQ causes is to create a campaign through Twibbon, a web tool that helps users get exposure for their brands, charities and initiatives. Twibbon can add a Pride ribbon to your Facebook and Twitter profile photos and help you coordinate messages of support and related content across both social platforms.

About FOX 2 News

FOX 2 and KPLR 11 in St. Louis cover the news in Missouri and Illinois. There are over 68 hours of live news and local programming on-air each week. Our website and live video streams operate 24/7. Download our apps for alerts and follow us on social media for updates in your feed.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
