Unicode 14.0 gender inclusive emoji

It’s worth noting that the latest release adds to the list of growing gender-inclusive emoji that were released with Unicode 13.0 last year. Emojipedia notes: “Gender options for pregnancy have been added using new code points in this release. A change to the usual format where emoji sequences are used for gender variations. Pregnant Person and Pregnant Man are both new code points, part of Unicode’s ongoing effort to make gender options consistent for all emojis.”

Furthermore, Unicode 14.0 will bring support for the Handshake emoji with a combination of skin tones to all platforms and fix the cross-platform display issue with the Face with Hand Over Mouth emoji.
