If you love using emojis to share your disappointment or your laugher or simply to tell your children that it’s time for sleep, be prepared to get a lot more expressive in the coming month.

This month, 37 new emojis will be released, including new nonbinary emojis.

These will include a person with a crown joining the king and queen, a pregnant man and a nonbinary pregnant person.
