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'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

I'm very proud of my family and would like to show everyone that.

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).

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.

This is offensive to me. If social agenda is going to be a part of this historically professional app, then you must be all inclusive. We all know that would be impossible.

Keep the app Generic

Microsoft added a show your pride switch in settings. Settings concerning life stlyes should not be forced on us users. If Microsoft insist on adding social issues to the app we the users should be given the ability to remove them. Gay live style is not a critical function of the Outlook App and it's something not all people agree with. I have been using Microsoft products since the 1980's but if Microsoft is going to push social agendas as part of their product I will stop using them. I recommend that Microsoft concentrate on their core business and stay away for promoting their social agenda.

This update pushed today contained the high-level app setting to "show your pride". Microsoft has largely maintained a producer of professional apps that can be used in any country, people of any ethnicity working in any industry.
this simple feature addition has crossed that line to offend, and it adds absolutely no value to the app behavior.
please remove this setting so as to remain a professional producer of great products.

I don't agree with the ********* agenda and don't want my email client promoting *********. Why would you promote being proud of something people do sexually but yet not promote the many other causes that could be promoted? Men having *** with men or a woman pretending to be a man or a man cutting off his ***** to try to become a woman isn't something I want my email client promoting.

Focus on useful features

I don't want to see "Show your pride" in Settings. You have all kinds of users and you can't cater to everyone. Don't shove your agenda in our throats.
Meaningless virtue signalling has no place in an app like this. I'm surprised at Microsoft falling for this kind of rubbish.
