During the announcement of the new Island Living expansion for The Sims 4 (opens in new tab), it was also announced that The Sims is partnering with the It Gets Better Project (opens in new tab) to bring new Pride and It Gets Better items into the The Sims 4. This includes new articles of clothing, a gender neutral bathroom door, and other items that will let Sims players show off their LGBTQ+ pride.

The It Gets Better Project is a nonprofit organization with a mission to uplift, empower, and connect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth around the globe. The announcement was made by YouTuber and producer Joey Graceffa (opens in new tab)

None of the exclusive upcoming items were shown during the stream, but the new content will become accessible beginning on June 18 in the Sims 4 as well as on the Sims mobile apps.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
