M365 Changelog: Pride Themes in New Mac Outlook

MC545896 – Microsoft has created colorful themes inspired by the flags of the LGBTQI+ communities to help you show your Pride in the New Mac Outlook. When you’re using the Pride theme, you’ll see rainbow accent colors applied in the app.

You can celebrate Pride by choosing one of five different themes inspired by the Pride, Lesbian, Bisexual, Non-binary, and Transgender flags. (The Outlook themes will be available on a year-round basis, not just during the month of June.)
