Snapchat is bringing a taste of Pride into its Landmarkers Lenses.

The messaging application introduced Landmarkers in April as a way for Snapchatters to bring global landmarks to life, debuting the feature with Buckingham Palace in London; the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.; the Eiffel Tower in Paris; the Flatiron Building in New York; and the TLC Chinese Theater in Los Angeles.

In order to mark Pride Month in June, several official Lens Creators who identify as LGBTQ designed Pride-themed Landmarkers to transform the Capitol Building, the Flatiron Building and the Chinese Theater into icons of Pride.

Starting Thursday, Snapchatters who visit one of those three sites can open the app’s rear-facing camera, tap on the background to access Lenses, swipe over to the Landmarker Lens and watch the landmark transform in real-time.
