Meaningful messages.

Conversation brings us together. But that real, human connection we all seek grows most organically when we can show up as the most unapologetic, authentic version of ourselves.

Connect with Pride.

Messenger collaborated with AKQA to create a social campaign to celebrate the close connections of Pride in 2022.

The film tells the story of Kais, a young man from Tunisia who left his home country where it is illegal by law to be gay. He arrived in the United States by himself and uses Messenger to stay close and share updates with the important people in his life.


Finding community.

The hero film and short form videos ran on Messenger’s social media platforms and was shared by influencer talent, driving significant reach and an overall engagement rate that was 85% stronger than benchmark.
