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.
