News : Google Campaign “Legalize Love”
The path of gay marriage has never been very smooth everywhere in the world and you would think that our governments – that ultimely work for the citizens- would listen to us, especially here in North America…
Even companies have offered their support to same-sex lovers in their marketing…
Think of Gap who showed two men in their latest campaign sharing a t-shirt, designers/brands like Dolce and Gabbana or Diesel, underwear companies like 2xist and even beer companies like Miller Lite did something similar too.
Yesterday, Google which has always express their support for gay marriage, decided to confront politicians publicly by launching a global campaign called “Legalize Love.”
The campaign will be active in every country in which it has an office and will be focussing mainly on those places that actually have anti-gay legislation.
Google also wants to mobilize other companies as well in order to put a collective pressure on governments.
“We want our employees who are gay or lesbian or transgender to have the same experience outside the office as they do in the office,” says Google’s Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe, head of the company’s diversity team, at the Global LGBT Workplace Summit in London. “It is obviously a very ambitious piece of work.”
Wouldn’t it be fantastic if several large corporations would explain to the governments that they would move their offices out of their country unless they legalize gay marriage?
Money has power… Let’s see what will happen!
