Global giant Google searches for a way to make the world a better place for lesbians, gays and bisexuals with new campaign

Google is launching a new campaign calling on countries to ‘Legalize Love’ – making it legal to be lesbian, gay or bisexual around the world.

The campaign, which will officially launch tomorrow (7 July), is likely to start by focusing on Poland and Singapore but eventually spread to every country where Google has an office around the world.

It will tackle places where it is illegal to be gay, or where there are other anti-gay laws or where the culture is homophobic.

High-profile corporate sponsors build prominence of Singapore’s only LGBT pride event

Google and Barclays have both announced that they will support Pink Dot on 30 June at Speaker’s Corner in Hong Lim Park, the only place in Singapore where public protest is allowed.

Google is a major employer in Singapore and its LGBT employee network (who call themselves the ‘gayglers’) contacted Pink Dot last year. The search engine then sponsored the event’s main stage.
