This year the Valentine’s Day is way more special for a special reason that this time it’s the first valentines after section 377 got decriminalized.
To add up to the celebration, Uber India has started a unique campaign by demanding a rainbow heart emoji. They have also posted a petition for the same on their social media platform. They have asked their followers to upload photos by giving hashtag #lovemovesforward. The post also mentions that there is a need for pride emojis so that LGBTQIA+ community can use it.
While posting a picture of a pride heart they wrote “Let’s celebrate our first Valentine’s Day for all with a symbol everyone can embrace. It’s time for an inclusive heart that celebrates the many shades of love. Sign the petition to help us get the Pride Heart emoji.”

Not only this on Tuesday, but Uber India also added a rainbow map on the app. Every time their customers booked a cab, the map light up with a rainbow.
