The rainbow flag shines on Twitter the day before the Pride anniversary
These social networks are filled these days with the colors of the rainbow flag and on the eve of the International LGBTI Pride Day, some political parties, companies and institutions have changed the logo of their profile to join the celebration and the demands of this group.
The PSOE and its territorial federations, Unidas Podemos, Compromís, Más País, BNG or ERC are some of the parties that have added the rainbow flag to their logos, just as the UGT and CCOO unions, public companies such as Metro de Madrid and Posts and institutions such as the Civil Guard, in the latter case wearing the colors of Pride has not been without controversy.
In addition to sporting the logo, the Ferraz socialist headquarters in Madrid has displayed the rainbow flag on the facade to welcome the celebration. Act that has also been repeated in several territorial socialist headquarters.
Yesterday, the Civil Guard joined the protest party on Twitter and placed its shield on the Pride flag.
This gesture of the institution did not like some users and, for example, from Vox, the deputy Macarena Olona responded with a message, also on Twitter, that the Civil Guard "only covers itself with the flag of Spain" and asked for the resignation of the Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska.
Correos was one of the first to adhere to the tribute to the LGTBI collective and days ago issued a special stamp that also sparked a debate on the suitability or otherwise of the decision.
"We love that you are the color you want. That is why at Correos, we are yellow, we are going to celebrate it in all colors," says the public company in a tweet on the social network to which it adds the hashtag #nosoloamarillo.
Metro de Madrid is another of the public companies that has also joined the rainbow celebration. And on his Twitter account he announces: "in the coming days we will dress with the flag to celebrate # Pride2020".
