Google Searches Go Colorful, 3D for LGBT Pride MonthBy: Josh Wolford - June 24, 2013
And this time, it’s 3D!
LGBT-related searches such as LGBT, gay, gay marriage, lesbian, transgender, bisexual, homosexual, and queer will bring up the multi-colored, 3D search results box.
Last year, Google displayed a multi-colored, rounded pattern under the search box and back in 2011 it was a curved rainbow on the right-hand side of the box. Google’s been doing this in support of LGBT pride month for the last 6 years.
In 2011, President Obama called upon Americans to “observe this month by fighting prejudice and discrimination in their own lives and everywhere it exists.” Bill Clinton was the first U.S. President to make the declaration of June as LGBT pride month, doing so back in 2000.
“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,” the company has said in the past.
