As June approaches, so does Pride month. For all of those in the LGBTQ community, this is a month to celebrate themselves and those who came before them. Riot Games has been a company that participates in the celebration of Pride month and started to make different parts of their games to show it. This year will be no different. Here’s a look at the League of Legends Pride Month Emotes and more.

As one can see there will be a lot of different areas that Riot Games will be adding earnable rewards for Pride month. This will include League of Legends where there will be new icons, emotes and trails coming out of champions. The trails are in the colors of the different flags representing each part of the community. With these are Poro Disco ball icons in a similar vein.
One of the best parts about everything that was shown was actually the lore. For the first time ever, Riot Games and League of Legends confirmed a speculated relationship. This one between Graves and Twisted Fate. While this is not the first relationship of the LGBTQ variety in the League of Legends Universe, it is one that many had speculated for some time.
Pride Month for Riot Games is just that, a full month. They are releasing Pride merch as well with 100% of the proceeds going to the “It Gets Better Project“. Make sure to check out every Riot Games game in order to get all the Pride Month items, merch and more.
