Valentine’s Day is upon us and people have started planning for the day of love. However, this Valentine’s is more special as it’s the first Valentine’s Day after the decriminalisation of Section 377.
To make this day more special Uber India has started a campaign by posting a petition on their social media platforms where they demand a rainbow heart emoji. Uber India have asked followers to upload photos by giving hashtag #LoveMovesForward. Uber in it post mentions that there is a need for pride emojis so that LGBTQIA+ community could use it.
Uber posted a video of a pride heat with caption, “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.”

Love has no boundaries.
Love doesn’t see gender.
Love makes fearless, loved n free.
Love makes a person powerful.#LoveMovesForward
