A new rainbow emoji celebrating LGBTQ pride month has gone up on Facebook, but you have to go through a few steps to get one.

The emoji, which can be posted as a reaction to posts along with “like” and other emojis, will be available through the end of June.

“We believe in building a platform that supports all communities,” Facebook announced. “So we’re celebrating love and diversity this Pride by giving you a special reaction to use during Pride Month.”

To add the new emoji to your reaction palette, go to the LGBTQ@Facebook page and “like” the page.

Activists are already giving the new emoji a workout, reports The Associated Press.

U.S. Senate candidate and outspoken same-sex marriage opponent Roy Moore is getting trolled on Facebook with hundreds of rainbow flag emojis.

Critics of the suspended Alabama Supreme Court justice flooded his campaign’s Facebook page with the symbol for gay pride. It was attached to recent posts and comments on his campaign’s Facebook page.

Moore was suspended as chief justice of Alabama’s high court after a judicial discipline panel ruled he urged 68 probate judges to defy the U.S. Supreme Court decision allowing gays and lesbians to marry. Moore denied the accusation.

Moore is part of a crowded GOP field vying to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former Senate seat.
