ADD the option of either "Supporting Pride" (which you now have) AND/OR "Supporting Families". More inclusive of users.
Some Facebook users "Support Pride" (the LGBQT emphasis), and wish to be identified with this movement. Others "Support Families" (biological children have a right to know and be in a family composed of their biological mother and father), and wish to be identified with this emphasis. Some might desire to be identified with both emphases. So, it seems to me that it would be more INCLUSIVE to the vast numbers of people and backgrounds who are on the Facebook platform to CHOOSE either, or both options to be identified with publicly on their Facebook account.
All that would need to be done is with your present option ("Support Pride") add the possibility of "Support Family", with the possibility of checking either one or both options.

I am G in LGBT and I couldnt care less about this
I keep seeing these sorts of suggestion. All I want to know is, what does any of it have to do with my email? I don't care what your preferences are, they have nothing to do with me, or my email, please keep them out of my Outlook.
Or "nothing" so we don't have to clutter our already crammed screens.

I believe if one specific community is publicly acknowledged, and not others, it sends the message that their lifestyle, values, and beliefs are more important, or that their culture is superior. Personally, I believe it is up to the parents to educate their children about the diversity of all cultures. And, ftr, I am in NO way against the community being discussed.

no disrespect, but this app has so many issues where simply using it to read emails is hindered that this is hardly worth considering as a future improvement anytime soon.

LGBTQ people are part of families. If you don't like politics, then keep your Nazi ********* out of the forums.

i'm hot homophobic, if some people are proud to be gay, no problem, then why, us, heterosexual people, wouldn't have the same right to be proud of our orientation? #peace #realequalities #stopdemagogy #noDiscrimination4realNotOnlyWords

Support the nuclear family? Perish the thought! That would be racist or transphobic or or or...I'd be surprised if Microsoft did anything that was not pandering to (insert a cause).
Couchey, Arin commented
why not add the option to get rid of all of that if you don't support anyone's "cause"?

Under Preferences, Outlook email offers the option of "Showing Your Pride" (LGBQT+). For many of your users, this will be a welcome option, as they both identify and want to promote the LGBQT+ movement in some way.
However, I know that there are many Outlook users who both identify and would like to promote "Support the Family" (mothers, fathers, children), as they both identify and want to promote stable, loving families with mothers, fathers, children.
This would be a way to provide more choice, I believe, to the vast number of Microsoft users worldwide who are pro-family. Indeed, critical to each generation of children are mothers and fathers in a stable, loving relationship who are bound to one another and their child(ren).

Remove the 'Your Pride' function from the app, it has nothing to do with e-mail (Outlook is an e-mail-app and NOT a social media item! besides, the 'Your Pride' item influences the color contrast in the app, sometimes colors are not shown in high contrast. Removing the 'Your Pride' function should solve this contrast problem.
