If you aren’t already familiar, Instagram has had a tradition of rolling out this fun little feature every June, when Pride month comes a-knocking. There are two ways you can get these rainbow rings.

1. Use a pride-related hashtag

Some examples of hashtags you can use are: #pride, #gay, #lesbian, #bisexual, #trans, #virtualpride, #lgbtq, #equality, #loveislove, #lovewins, #bornperfect, #equalitymatters, #accelerateacceptance, #pride2020.

Do let us know if you find anymore valid hashtags.

2. Use pride stickers
