Interracial Couples Are Finally Getting the Emojis They Deserve

Now interracial couples don't have to change their colors.

It's surprising that the idea of interracial couples is not standard in customizable products like emojis. Not everyone dates someone of the same race, and everyone deserves to be represented in the media they consume. While emojis for people of color have just recently become a reality (the process took far too long), one group of people that are still excluded from emoji representation are interracial couples. There are a few emojis for couples but, while you have the option to choose same-sex relationships, there are no options for interracial couples (same-sex or otherwise) and it never feels good to feel unrepresented and unseen.

Well, Focus Features is trying to fix that. They just released an app, in conjunction with the upcoming film LOVING, which follows the true lives of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple whose love shook a racist America (trailer below), called Love-Moji, and it is EVERYTHING.

Now interracial couples won't have to compromise or settle for emoji couples where one partner is racially misrepresented. How awesome is that?! Check out some of Love-Moji's emojis for interracial couples below!

Download the Love-Moji app for iOS or for Google Play. Users can also visit VoteLoving.com for more info.
