These companies are all about celebrating pride month. Check out exactly what they are doing to showcase their recognition.

The social media platform introduced the pride reaction button this year. The button can be found by the other “like options” and can be recognized by the rainbow circle.

Instagram
A special LGBTQ sticker set was launched along with a Pride-inspire photo project. The stickers included a trans flag inspired design.

Lyft
The ride sharing company announced that it would donate $100,000 over the next 12 months to LGBTQ causes. Lyft cars were also seen along Pride routes decked out in rainbow colors.

Twitter
Twitter introduced a hashtag icon that can be summoned with the hashtags #Pride2017, #PrideMonth, and #LoveisLove.
