Google Announces ‘Legalise Love’ Campaign
From Google’s statement:
Though our business and employees are located in offices around the world, our policies on non-discrimination are universal throughout Google. We are proud to be recognised as a leader in LGBT inclusion efforts, but there is still a long way to go to achieve full equality. Legalise Love is our call to decriminalise homosexuality and eliminate homophobia around the world.
At Google, we encourage people to bring their whole selves to work. In all of our 60 offices around the world, we are committed to cultivating a work environment where Googlers can be themselves and thrive. We also want our employees to have the same inclusive experience outside of the office, as they do at work, and for LGBT communities to be safe and to be accepted wherever they are.

With Euro 2012 dominating the soccer world for the month, and against the backdrop of gays being warned against being open in Ukraine, one of the host countries, we find a poster from a German group that asks fans to consider homophobia.
‘I AM: Trans People Speak,’
New GLAAD Media Campaign, Aims To Raise Transgender Community Awareness
As GLAAD notes, “Transgender people have a wide range of interests, experiences and backgrounds that are too often ignored because of their trans identity. Together we can make a positive change in the visibility and representation of transgender people by focusing on the full individual.”
Titled “I AM: Trans People Speak,” the video features candid talk by actress, producer and transgender advocate Laverne Cox and Isis King, the first transgender contestant featured on “America’s Next Top Model,” among others.
GLAAD and MTPC is asking members of the transgender community and their allies to create their own videos for the upcoming launch.
“It will lift the voices of transgender individuals, as well as their families, friends, and allies,” GLAAD officials note of the project.
