A new graphic related to this year’s Pride Month has been published.
June is approaching, which for many years has been associated with Pride Month, a time when members of the LGBTQ+ community speak with courage and joy about who they are. For 30 days, they adorn their social media or gaming profiles with colors associated with particular sexual minority flags.
Non-LGBTQ+ people can also show their support and acceptance by setting an appropriately modified profile or icon in their favorite titles.
In League of Legends, Pride Month is celebrated every year with emoticons, icons, or visual effects that appear behind characters when they leave the base. This time is no different.
What does the new Pride Month-related graphics look like and who appeared on them?
Pride Month in League of Legends
This is what the new graphic promoting this year’s Pride Month in League of Legends looks like:
You can notice on it, among other things:
- Neeko, who was the first character to openly prefer girls,
- K’Sante, who openly prefers men,
- Caitlyn and Vi, whose romantic relationship was confirmed with the release of Arcane,
- Graves and Twisted Fate, whose relationship became canonical that year,
- Diana and Leona, whose relationship was confirmed in 2021,
- Nami, whose polyamorous relationship with a man and a woman was revealed in Legends of Runeterra.
The graphics associated with Pride Month will receive two different versions for PC and Wild Rift. The latter will feature only the characters that are available in the game. K’Sante’s place in the center will be replaced by Twisted Fate.
Three themed emoticons have also appeared on PBE. Two of them depict K’Sante, and one depicts Vi.
There was also a reminder that participation in the Pride Month celebration is completely voluntary and those who do not want to have a related background in their profile will not have it. Those who want to participate in Pride Month in League of Legends will be able to purchase a Pride icon for 1 Blue Essence and with it modify their profile accordingly.
