NEW YORK — The popular cookie brand Oreo announced on Sunday that it had partnered with the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) to give away “pronoun packs” in recognition of those who identify as “transgender” at PrideFest/WorldPride in New York City.
“We’re proud to celebrate inclusivity for all gender identities and expressions. In partnership with NCTE, we’re giving away special edition Pronoun Packs and encouraging everybody to share their pronouns with pride today and every day,” Oreo posted to social media in sharing a photograph of the packaging, which reads “share your pronouns with pride” and features gender symbols.
The photograph also featured an Oreo-like pin that reads, “Ask me my pronouns.” The pins were reportedly also given away at the event.
“We are proud to support the LGBTQIA+ community, celebrate all forms of identity and encourage inclusivity at WorldPride 2019 and beyond,” a brand representative wrote on Facebook in response to a supporter.
“Oreo is proud to partner with the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) for this activation, and will be making a donation to NCTE to further a shared commitment to promote inclusivity, empathy and opportunity for everyone,” they also outlined.
Some who were excited about the Pronoun Packs asked how they could purchase the special edition chocolate sandwich cookies, but were advised that they were only available at the New York pride event, although Oreo would “continue to offer new products that respond to the preferences of our consumers.”
