Love wins when you use these Pride-themed wallpapers

June is Pride month, one of unity and hope and celebration and love, and in trying times like these, I can think of nothing we need more. No matter who you love — or who you don't love, for the asexuals and aromantics out here — we can all unite in love, and we can let that love and unity protect us all. We all want the same thing: to be safe, to be accepted, to be happy. So let's be happy and let our colors fly.

Freedom is ours

Some parts of the Pride community are more visible than others, but they are all beautiful and they are all worthy of admiration and acceptance. That's why this series from FannimalToTheBone brings me joy and pride for showcasing some of the sexualities that are often overlooked: Pansexuality (attraction to people of any gender), Aromantic (little to no romantic attraction), and Asexuality (little to no sexual attraction). These wallpapers are bold, vibrant, and incorporate each sexualities' colors in beautiful, fluid ways.

The Pride Flag is beautiful and beautifully diverse, and this patchwork Pride Flag wallpaper reminds us that within each color, within each aspect, within each person lies a myriad of beauty, symmetry, and divinity. This patchwork wallpaper also feels communal, as each square speaks to a different style and sensibility.

A prism of colors coming together.

Technically Pride Month is June, but who are we to argue with a wallpaper this bright and hopeful? Let's have a whole Pride Summer! This design may seem familiar to Apple fans, but it's brighter, bolder, and it gives me hope that tomorrow could be just as bright.

Rainbow July by Dynamicz34

Colors blur, people blur; we are all one.

This seemingly simple wallpaper works well on busy desktops or simple home screens, once again blurring the lines and showing a gentle, shifting rainbow.

Pride by DangerouslyComposed

We will rise. We will bloom.

The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all. And while the LGBTQIA community is a community that has almost always faced adversity, that adversity brings it together and makes it stronger. And I have no doubts that this community will indeed continue to bloom and grow in love and inclusion.

Let Me Be Your Rainbow by Anyzamarah

The curtain may rise, or the curtain may fall, but we will never let it silence us.

No matter who you are, no matter who you love and who you surround yourself with, there is a place for us all in this society and there is a place for us all in the light. No matter how dark it seems at times, the light of love will prevail, and at the end of a dark storm, all we can hope for is that we see a rainbow shining in the sky.

  • Good idea. Here's another, also free. http://www.wallcoo.net/cartoon/colorful_objects_and_designs/wallpapers/1...
  • Oh nice! These are really great, thanks!
  • Thanks for this <3
  • Very awesome...thank you! <3
  • Awesome! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Very cool !!!
  • "This rainbow isn't tidy or simple, and neither are the people who live under these flags." Wow, how offensive. You just generalized everyone under the rainbow flag in one sentence. And using antonyms, you are calling all people under this flag dirty and flamboyant.
  • She simply called them diverse. Don't try and read between really thin lines. P̶o̶s̶t̶e̶d̶ ̶f̶r̶o̶m̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶N̶e̶x̶u̶s̶ ̶6̶P̶

  • Well they can't be that diverse if none of the people under the flag are tidy or simple.
  • They're clearly calling the collective untidy and complex - not referring to any individual. There can obviously be tidy and simple people within the collective.
  • Don't be so eager to be offended. It's very clear from the context of the entire article that your willfull misunderstanding of that one small snippet is way off base. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Bet you're a vegan too.. Posted from Middle Earth
  • That's a big diss coming from someone with a picture of Bernie Sanders as their avatar
  • I um, I hope you are joking.
  • I'm gay, vegan, and atheist : ) GS7 via the app
  • Don't turn the comments in this article like it's Windows Central counterpart. #TeamFrosty Nexus 6P
  • I agree. This is a positive article so let's all chill out and not search / hunt to try and turn it negative.
  • Why do people try so hard to be offended by literally anything these days? 🙄
  • Nice! I didn't know about any of these so thank you.
  • Does anyone know what the lime green google widget is?
  • Probably action launcher, changes the color of the search bar and other elements based on your wallpaper colors.
  • That's exactly what it is.
  • These are great. Thank you!
  • There are two sexes, male and female. Just ask biology.
  • There are never only 2. How many there are depends on how you're defining "sexes". If you're referring to chromosomal genetic sex, there are 2+ 7 common (relatively to other more uncommon differentiation) chromosomal arrangements, which would give us two sex poles with arrangements that tend to gravitate near one or the other. If we're not talking chromosomal arrangement, then you probably mean anatomically, in which case there are 4 (male, female, both, neither). If we're referring to hormonal sex, (what biologists typically will lean towards), then we're left with 3 (the smallest possible number), which are male, female and neutral.
  • Love wins? What the ***** does that even mean? Oh well, the consistent banter from the Snowflakes doesn't have to make sense. That one thing is obvious.
  • Who's the snowflake again? You're the one here whining like a little girl.
  • Snowflake? I'm sorry twink, a Snowflake qualifies as a limp wristed Beta Male. Such as yourself. Does your ass ranger wallpaper provide you with your generation cupcake trophy as well? I would advise you to suck a bowl of ***** but I'm sure you're way ahead of me.
  • Bye
  • You're so cute with all your trendy alt-right buzzwords and catchphrases you twats bandy around on twitter and 4chan. Maybe one day you'll be as cool as Posobiec, Cynovich, Spencer, Milo, and all those other festering pieces of crap. What makes you think you're not a beta? I'd have your pathetic self on the ground crying in two seconds flat.
  • Oh crap, this guy has been reminded that The Gays exist. Someone find him a safe space, quickly!
  • It's not that they exist, it's that anybody who disagrees is typically ostracized. We don't do well accepting others who think differently these days.... That's both sides of an argument. We seem to have this talk show approach to handling matters. It's fairly dysfunctional...Let's put the spot light on those that don't agree with our group think and roast them. Blah
  • People can believe what they want. It's when they try to tell other people that one marriage devalues another or tell them that they shouldn't be allowed families or visitation when their loved one is in the hospital that we have a problem. As an asexual, most people aren't going to infringe on me because I just want to be left alone. The most I get called is 'nun', 'dead' and 'defective'. But that assumes that they believe me, most people don't believe that I exist. They think it's impossible that a young woman doesn't want sex. "I bet I can turn you on." "You just haven't been with the right person." "You just haven't been with a real man." And love wins because it's the only thing that can. Hate doesn't win because it's impossible to sustain. Fear can't win because we grow to understand our opponent and that fear fades. Anger can last a long time, but anger also dulls and blinds us. Love can rise above, love can reach out and bridge divides, and love can mend hearts and souls. And if love is love is love, then when I celebrate my love, I celebrate yours, too.
  • Funny... Bible teaches that exactly... Love conquers. It even warns is against religion. Do people corrupt ideas or do ideas corrupt people? Despite disagreeing with the action, nowhere does Good ever tell anybody to shun another. The fact is, none of us are infallible. Ideas, labels, and debates won't change that. I do agree... Love conquers all. However, respect and love are very different. Without standards, there will be debates concerning what is acceptable. Respect within diversity can become extremely tedious. I believe that's why our culture seems so sensitive these days. Allow others vices you don't allow yourself
  • Just don't.
  • Don't what?
  • Preach religion here. That should have been obvious based on the comment I was directly replying to.
  • I know exactly what you meant. So , let me get this straight. We are living in a world where anything goes , it is a free for all, nothing is out of bounds. No one can be questioned.
    I get it , I'm hip, it is all good. Someone wants to bring a little religion into the mix , then ah hell no , we can't have that. You see, I stand up for everyone's right to speak their mind even if I disagree. I'm not a religious person myself, but I do not want to shut them down. Who's the intolerant one?
  • Religion is an integral part of America and should never lose it's place and importance. But it also should not be used to shame a group of people who are expressing their self acceptance in a world that still has a tough time accepting people as they are. That really should be the focus of this thread. Two things can coexist peacefully if both sides stop trying to control what can't be controlled.
  • This isn't a religious forum, nor is the article religious in nature. Not the place for it. That should be obvious to everyone. I could rip the post apart, but I didn't. It's not the place for it.
  • Hey, I wouldn't think a Android site would be talking about Pride month either or sexuality, but here we are.
  • Nailed it!
  • It means love wins over hate. Something you're​ obviously ignorant to.
  • Love wins over hate? Like your party hates everyone that has a different opinion? Can't wait for the upcoming left vs right... But we must be careful right? You snowflakes can slap, bite and scratch. ******* ******.
  • Yikes. That's some insane about of triggering you just had mate. Calm down, it's going to be okay.
  • You can disagree with choices and still love that person. Passion for an idea isn't hate. But emotions betray us all... No matter the side you choose. I don't understand why any sort of disagreement labels others as hateful, bigots, or anything else. People on both sides need to be more mature.
  • Or, people on one side could stop trying to control everything. Love is out of their damn control and it is utterly offensive for people to be told how and who to love. I am not gay but my brother is and I think it's completely asinine that there are states and places where it is frowned upon and illegal for him and his boyfriend to get married.
    Tupac said it the best.
    "The old ways aren't working so it's on us to do what we gotta do to survive"
    The old ways of religion, politics, ethnicities and overall perception of the human race as a global species. We are all one race. The human race. So that one side needs to stop acting like it's something different.
  • And it's not a effing choice. It's a feeling. Love is a feeling. You don't choose to love. You *FEEL* love. I didn't choose to love my wife. I felt the love. I *CHOSE* to have kids with her. What is so difficult for people to understand that it's not a choice?
  • Love is also an act, in addition to an emotional feeling. That part is very much a choice.
  • Hahahaaaa. You are completely off your rocker there buddy.
  • The attempt to re-define and hijack the meaning of love has been sickening. Love is sacrifice. But no one wants sacrifice or commitment so now "love" is now an emotion that caters to fulfilling your selfish emotions. *barf* Pride has also been re-define to be something good. Now it's an excuse to display a bedroom behavioral choice in public and make everyone accept it. Not happening here.
  • Except it, don't except it. Gay people don't need your permission to live their lives as they choose. And I'm sorry to say, that's the bottom line.
  • Wow, love by definition is an intense feeling of deep affection. How ignorant are you. That statement is the definition of ignorance. Lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated
  • Yeah, how are you just going to decide how someone else feels? Give me a break!
  • The Noahic covenant applies to all of humanity and to all other living creatures. In this covenant, God promises never again to destroy all life on Earth by flood and creates the rainbow as the sign of this "everlastingcovenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth".
  • Not even good fiction.
  • sigh....
  • Why so sad?
  • Where are the straight pride wallpapers? I thought this pride stuff was about equality? Not special treatment.
  • Aw, poor victim of oppression. Isn't it just awful how unfairly straight people are treated and discriminated against? All the poor white males too, so repressed. If only straight white people weren't being denied their rights on a daily basis.
  • ROFLMAO
  • Awwww, what's this, downvotes? Sorry Alt-right snowflakes, no safe space for you here. Maybe try 4chan.
  • Yeeeessss
  • "Aw, poor victim of oppression." He said, as he tried (and failed) to oppress me for my free speech. Funny how you lefties always self exempt yourselves for behavior you lecture all us lessor people about. "Isn't it just awful how unfairly straight people are treated and discriminated against?" It is when it is. But that's not what I said, implied, or what my point was in my last post. " All the poor white males too, so repressed." That's what your avatar is. Isn't that what you are then? Do you enjoy making fun of your own birth genetics? Or just others? "If only straight white people weren't being denied their rights on a daily basis." Again, not my words or point. But since it seems to be yours about gays, what "rights" are gays denied now? And how does wallpaper do a single thing to fix it?
  • "what rights are gays denied"? Thankfully very few, thanks to alot of courage and hard work. 😊
  • Again, WHAT are they? "Very few" is still like at least a couple more than one. So name them. Or name even one right, currently denied to gay people but available to strait people.
  • You think too small. There is ALWAYS work to do to bring basic human rights to all, and not just in the US. There is also work to do to make sure those rights are not compromised by slick back door policy.
  • Ok. So that a grand total of ZERO so far. Let's see if Doctor Dummy can do any better. I won't hold my breath.
  • If you're that clueless, Google search is your friend. It's not our responsibility to answer your wilful ignorance.
  • There's not much point in trying to, either. Whatever you present him will just get explained away in that conservatives-know-all condescending crap they spew.
  • Yeah, I'm not getting pulled in anymore by these nut cases. It's like communicating with ******* pinwheel.
  • In America, a lot of states ban Same-Sex couples from adopting kids, ban same-sex couples from their Prom, all manner of discrimination around things that You take for granted. Even banks can turn down same-sex couples for a mortgage to buy a house. Then there is the "religious freedom" bullshit laws which give american hypochristians "WWJD" right to discriminate against people because it goes against their "religious values". Bakeries refusing to bake wedding cakes for same-sex couples. You need to check your straight white male entitlement at the door, because one day, you won't have it, and your whole world will come crashing down around your ears.
  • In America, a lot of states ban Same-Sex couples from adopting kids," NOT TRUE:
    http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/us_56fdb1a3e4b083f5c607567f " ban same-sex couples from their Prom, all manner of discrimination around things that You take for granted." A lot of those cases come from religious schools. If you choose to go to a faith based school, they should have a right to set rules based on that faith, because you do NOT have to be there. It's just as silly as complaining that they have a strict dress code because they're religious. Religious places make rules based on their faith and what it teaches them is sinful. Regardless, many are facing lawsuits. And it's only a matter time before the practice is outlawed. "Even banks can turn down same-sex couples for a mortgage to buy a house." I'm gonna call bullshit on that one too, unless you have proof otherwise? "Then there is the "religious freedom" bullshit laws which give american hypochristians "WWJD" right to discriminate against people because it goes against their "religious values". Bakeries refusing to bake wedding cakes for same-sex couples. " First of all, those "bullshit laws" as you call them
    are our Constitution. One of the cornerstones of what and why America is America. Second, if you examine what happened to the lives and business of an Oregon couple who refused to make a cake for a gay couple, I say the practice is FAR from protected. Despite what the Constitution says, unfortunately. "You need to check your straight white male entitlement at the door, because one day, you won't have it, and your whole world will come crashing down around your ears." Entitlement? The ONLY thing I feel I'm entitled to
    are the self evident rights from God spelled out in the U.S. Constitution. I'm not the one asking for rainbow crosswalks at the taxpayer's expense or clapping because someone recognized my sexuality and gave me a special wallpaper. I don't need other people to validate my sexuality. Just not illegally oppress me because of it.
  • Yep, I'm a white male for sure, but not so dense I don't understand the vast privilege I have as such, and feel the need to whine about my imagined persecution as one, as the right is so fond of nowadays. Another thing your type never seems to get is this whining about free speech. That's only in regards to the government suppressing that right...not at all about private persons or entities calling you out on it. You can say whatever you like, but others are also free to reply.
  • White privilege is a fake term made up by the left. If gays want equality than they should stop with the rainbow flag and parade BS.
  • In other words, shut up and get back in the closet, says random internet guy. Great advice.
  • Most gay people I've know are weird and\or crazy. If gays were more like normal people they'd be able to get along better.
  • I don't think most gay people care what you think. So stop trolling dude, it's embarrassing.
  • More than that, I don't think most ANYONE cares what he thinks.
  • You're statement is so stupid it hurts. Your problem with pride parades is your own BS, and has nothing to do with why gay people March.
  • Or his own repressed urges.
  • "Yep, I'm a white male for sure, but not so dense I don't understand the vast privilege I have as such," Who said I don't recognize my privileges? Whether genetic or from being an American? Almost everyone in America has some sort of advantage over someone else. As well as disadvantages. That's life. You think you're SPECIAL and enlightened for recognizing that? The obvious? Really? Why? It might make you feel morally superior bud, but it does absolutely NOTHING to help the disadvantaged. So you can stop the navel gazing and guilt tripping. It's PATHETIC. ".. and feel the need to whine about my imagined persecution as one, as the right is so fond of nowadays." The only thing that's imagined, is you're saying I'm whining. I did NO such thing. I simply pointed out that
    the pride wallpapers do not keep in line with a message of equality because there are no straight wallpapers. I NEVER said I wanted straight wallpapers. I NEVER said it was unfair OR that this wrongs me in ANY way to not have straight pride wallpapers. I simply ASKED about the straight wallpapers to drive my point (which is about SPECIAL treatment, which IS what these wallpapers are) home. "Another thing your type never seems to get is this whining about free speech. That's only in regards to the government suppressing that right...not at all about private persons or entities calling you out on it. You can say whatever you like, but others are also free to reply." When did I say you couldn't reply to my free speech?
    That's right, I DIDN'T. Again, you ASSUME incorrectly. My comment was about HYPOCRISY. Not speech rights. You implied the oppression of gay people, and my supposed fake oppression, while actually attempting to oppress me for my speech because you don't like what I said. In other words, you cry foul if gay people are oppressed for practicing their Constitutional rights, but you oppress others who are not gay for practicing theirs if you don't like it. That's textbook bigotry.
  • Yawn...
  • Seriously, does this guy have anything better to do? Self-righteous blather that was barely worth skimming.
  • It's the same old crying every time out. And they think were too stupid to read between the lines at what they're really saying underneath all the blathering. I am a bit tickled that any thread with "pride" or "rainbow" attracts these people. But everyone is free to iron out their "issues" in whatever way they can I guess. lol
  • True that. What a sad, pathetic lot with nothing better to do than crap on other people's things.
  • That awkward moment when you don't have free speech on Android Central, and you only abide by the Terms and Agreements when you signed up and made an account here. Stop making a non-issue, into an issue, for you anyways.
  • Pro-tip: It's entirely possible for you to see a headline, decide it's about nothing you care for, and MOVE THE **** ON. But since you're asking: Every day is "Straight Pride" day. That is part of the privilege of not being an oppressed class. And if you thought Pride is about equality, you are very sorely mistaken. it's about representation and visibility... something else Straight People take for granted in about 99% of every day life. In summary: Get a life.
  • "Pro-tip: It's entirely possible for you to see a headline, decide it's about nothing you care for, and MOVE THE **** ON." As it is ALSO possible to read a comment you don't like by a stranger and MOVE THE **** ON YOSELF. But thanks for the info Captain Obvious. "But since you're asking: Every day is "Straight Pride" day. That is part of the privilege of not being an oppressed class." That's not what I asked, actually. I asked where the straight pride wallpapers were. But if I had, I'd have to say: Oh that's bullshit. All we get is not picked on? If so, some people here are doing a lowsy job at that. I've already been personally attacked for be a straight white male. So much for my "privileges". Not that it surprises me. Lefties love to preach tolerance. But practice it? Not so much. "And if you thought Pride is about equality, you are very sorely mistaken." That's not what we were told like a billion times before gay marriage was made legal. But I do agree, it's not about equality. It's about special treatment. "it's about representation and visibility... something else Straight People take for granted in about 99% of every day life." I don't have any problem with representation. Or visibility (to a point) What I do have a problem with is the volume on those things turned up to a thousand 24/7/365. I really don't care whom or what turns you on. I don't even want to know that about most straight people. Keep your private business private, and I'll do the same. "In summary: Get a life." Says the person doing the exact same thing I'm doing. You people really have a problem with following your own rules.
  • Here's a little star (asterisk​) for participation *. Are you happy now?
  • Straight pride would be a white screen.
  • I think all the people who are straight, and NOT white, might take issue with that. Jus sayin
  • His whole point went right over your head. Boy aren't you a bright one.
  • some of these are real nice
  • I'm looking for free wallpaper for my phone
  • That last one is beautiful, and thank you for a pride-themed post AndroidCentral.
