Google Promotes Acceptance Of LGBT Community

Google's Legalize Love campaign
A Google spokesman tells the Washington Post that the campaign is not specifically targeted at marriage equality laws: “‘Legalize Love’ is a campaign to promote safer conditions for gay and lesbian people inside and outside the office in countries with anti-gay laws on the books,’ said a Google spokesperson in a statement.”

Though our business and employees are located in offices around the world, our policies on non-discrimination are universal throughout Google. We are proud to be recognised as a leader in LGBT inclusion efforts, but there is still a long way to go to achieve full equality. Legalise Love is our call to decriminalise homosexuality and eliminate homophobia around the world.
At Google, we encourage people to bring their whole selves to work. In all of our 60 offices around the world, we are committed to cultivating a work environment where Googlers can be themselves and thrive. We also want our employees to have the same inclusive experience outside of the office, as they do at work, and for LGBT communities to be safe and to be accepted wherever they are.

I've had issues with Google on occasion, but completely support their campaign to support LGBT rights.  The AFA is threatening to boycott Google as a result of their "Legalize Love" campaign.  Who cares!
