As numerous Pride related events were taking place around the globe, the Emergence Foundation launched the first tool that automatically flags online homophobia. Pride Flagging is a Chrome Extension that scrubs Twitter for 50 hateful terms in 15 different languages, striking through them with the colours of the Pride Flag, the universal symbol for diversity and inclusion.
