Viber has joined the bandwagon of tech companies that mark LGBT Pride this June with the release of LGBT-related stickers. The catch: the stickers aren’t for free; the packet costs $1.99.

Viber’s approach may be sending out a message about the company’s pro-LGBT values; but it also highlights how corporations profit from the LGBT community.
