In fact, let's say they were not emojis at all, except those representing two women or two men. Frustrated by this, advertising executive and graphic designer Kimberly Linn at Los Angeles ad agency Pitch, began to draw lesbian emojis and has posted them on her Instagram account. 10,000 followers later, the application "Lesbian Emojis" was launched.
“On one hand, you think there’s no need for them to be that inclusive –- they’re just emojis,” she told Marshable. “But at the same time, they’ve become a language. And my friends and I have never had anything that represented us.”
"The idea started as a joke between me and my friends," Linn told The Business Insider.
"I never really thought it was going to turn into anything. It had a small little following."
Already nearly 70 lesbian emojis have emerged but Linn doesn't want to stop there. She plans to draw emojis for gay men and turn the application Lesbian Emojis to LGBT Emojis.
