Google celebrates `Gay Pride` with rainbow coloured search box
Washington: Search engine Google is celebrating the pride month with its search box going all colourful when keywords like `Gay pride` `Stonewall` or `Gay` related to Wednesday`s ruling by the US court about the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) are typed.
The US Supreme Court today struck down a federal provision, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which denied same-sex legally married couples from receiving benefits.
According to ABC News, Google had rolled out this feature a month back but many users are discovering it only now due to the ruling about Proposition 8 and DOMA.
Google has supported marriage equality and gay rights, and in order to support the court ruling, Google employees at its San Francisco office had a cake made to look like the HRC symbol with two set of gay couples sitting on top.
Gay Google employees or Gayglers, as they are called, have also convened before this year`s Pride festivities to plan for Google`s marketing activities surrounding the big LGBT events.
Earlier this month a lesbian couple got married through Google`s chat service - Google Hangout, the report added.
