You probably haven’t read a comic book in a few years, but if you have, particularly if you have over the past two weeks, you might have noticed a lot less Batman and Joker, and a whole lot more rainbows and gender fluidity.

DC Comics, home of the Caped Crusader, is advertising LGBT Pride T-shirts for Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, and even the Joker’s girlfriend. They just released an anthology, “DC Pride,” that celebrates all the L-G-B-T-Q-I-A-and-on-and-on people apparently in the DC Comics Universe.

Did you know Aqualad, the black younger sidekick of Aquaman you’ve never heard of until now, is gay?

Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Cisco Systems, Lenovo, Capital One: All of them have a custom Pride logo. Sure, those are grown-up firms, but there’s also kids’ video game company Bethesda, the NFL, the D.C. United soccer club, Coca-Cola, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok. It’s wild to see so many multinational corporations that are all so brave and so daring. Of course, just in case you were wondering if this was about principles or pandering, none of those companies changed their logos in China, or in the Middle
