The Human Rights Campaign has put out a collection of LGBTQ-themed Zoom backgrounds to help queer folk make it through the coronavirus lockdown.

The backgrounds feature the rainbow, bisexual, and transgender flags as well as one covered with multiple HRC logos. Another one shows the version of the rainbow flag that includes extra brown and black stripes.

The video conferencing app Zoom is taking over corporate life as efforts to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus continue and more Americans work from home. Video meetings have become the new normal, and friends and family use it as well to stay in touch for virtual get-togethers.

And that’s bringing with it some unusual problems. What happens when a user doesn’t want to show off their filthy apartment?

There are a plethora of options now, including three Golden Girls Zoom backgrounds that will entice you to get together with friends. And maybe your mom.
