Ahead of the Pride month, Microsoft is introducing new special edition Pride skins and covers for Surface devices. The company is introducing a new Surface Pro Pride Type Cover, as well as a Pride Skin.

The Pride Skin is a $14.99 skin that comes with all the 16 flags of the LGBTQI+ communities. You can simply stick it onto your Surface Pro 4, Surface Pro 5, or Surface Pro 6 to show your love for the community. “The Pride Skin was inspired by the rich and varied tapestry of the LGBTQI+ community. It combines the colors of major LGBTQI+ flags to evoke both technology and the digital age. The result is a single, bold graphic that stands as a symbol of the strength and unity of the LGBTQI+ community—for today and in the future,” Microsoft says.

And the Pride Type Cover comes at $159.99, and it includes the Pride colors, as well as black and brown for diversity and inclusion. “The Pride Type Cover features a typographical treatment that nods to the era of graphic design at the time of the Stonewall uprising. Its simple, straightforward use of the word Pride combines with a modernized flag treatment that adds the colors black and brown to symbolize inclusion and diversity.” Microsoft said.

Microsoft will also be contributing a total of $100,000 to organizations in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada in honor of the new Pride products which is pretty cool.

The new Pride Type Cover will be available in the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK on June 27, but you can pre-order it today. The Pride Skin is available today in the US, Canada, and Australia.
