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.
Google’s Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe said: ‘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. It is obviously a very ambitious piece of work.’
Google will work with other organizations to lobby the governments.
