zoom with pride

June is usually the month when North America gets covered in a cascade of rainbow and glitter. Yup, it’s Pride. But this year, things are a little different. With COVID-19, many celebratory events for the LGBTQ+ community are going digital. But we can’t let that rain on our parade. To bring the joy of Pride into people’s homes, we partnered with some top-tier production houses to create a collection of bright colorful Zoom backgrounds you can use on your next video call. While we can’t celebrate Pride out on the streets, we can show it off in a new virtual format.

To change your Teams background (on Mac), just
follow these instructions:

  1. First, save the image to: /users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams/Backgrounds/Uploads.
  1. Next, once you’ve joined a meeting go to the control
    bar and select the three dots  ••• (More actions).
  1. Select Show background effects and pick your image.
