Facebook has added gay-inclusive options for users to describe their relationship status.

Users now have the options of describing themselves as “In a Civil Union” and “In a Domestic Partnership.”

The change was announced Thursday by gay rights group the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), which cheered the news.

“Today, Facebook sent a clear message in support of gay and lesbian couples to users across the globe,” GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios said in a statement. “By acknowledging the relationships of countless loving and committed same-sex couples in the U.S. and abroad, Facebook has set a new standard of inclusion for social media.”

“As public support for marriage equality continues to grow, we will continue to work for the day when all couples have the opportunity to marry and have their relationship recognized by their community, both online and off,” Barrios added.

The option is now available for Facebook users in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, France and Australia, GLAAD said.

GLAAD has previous worked with Facebook to help the social media giant tackle issues such as anti-LGBT cyberbullying and how to respond to hateful anti-gay comments.
