Type in the word “gay” “lesbian” or “transgender” in Google’s search box and you’ll get a rainbow along with results. It’s part of Google’s nod to Gay and Lesbian Pride Month, celebrated in June each year.
It’s not the first June when Google changes the search results interface when you search for [gay] and other related terms. While in 2009 and 2010 Google added a colorful bar below the search box, this year there’s a rainbow next to the search box.
June is the “Gay and Lesbian Pride Month” and there are many pride parades all over the world. Last year, Google’s blog included an article about gay parades and the Google employees who participated.
“Google supports its LGBT employees in many ways: raising its voice in matters of policy, taking a moment to remember the plight of transgender people around the world and going the extra mile to ensure that its employees are treated fairly.”
