Fortnite’s ‘Rainbow Royale’ Celebrates LGBTQ+ Community With Music And Rainbows

“Everyone is welcome on the Battle Bus”

Pride Month may have ended, but pride (lowercase) is all year round — and that includes video games. Fortnite has added a new event called Rainbow Royale to the game, celebrating diversity, community, and its many LGBTQ+ players with rainbow items, new songs by LGBTQ+ artists, and massive pride flags.

The rainbow items include:

  • Four new rainbow sprays (llama, heart, disco ball grenade, and star)
  • A “Sunshine & Rainbows” wrap
  • The “Take a’Bow” emote

There is also a new rainbow flag prop in Fortnite Creative.

There will also be new music in the Battle Royale, borrowed from Rocket League‘s Love ISLV playlist last month, and celebrating specifically LGBTQ+ musicians:

Love Izlv Radio

BEATBOX

  • Big Freedia – Platinum
  • Lil Nas X – Montero

RADIO UNDERGROUND

  • King Princess – Pain
  • Troye Sivan – STUD
  • Ben Platt – Imagine

POWER PLAY

  • Daya – Bad Girl
  • Hayley Kiyoko – Found My Friends
  • Kim Petras – Malibu

The Rainbow Royale event runs from today, July 20th, through to July 27th at 8pm ET (July 28th, 1am BST).
