According to a Dot429 report, the Global LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) Workplace Summit in London on Saturday witnessed Internet search giant Google announcing its worldwide `Legalize Love' campaign --- asking governments, especially those which still have anti-gay legislation in place, to legalize gay love.
The campaign - with Singapore and Poland as its first governmental targets - marks Google's latest stance in support for gay marriage, and is an indication of the fact that the company is publicly confronting the politicians on the issue.
With Google being an international company, its latest initiative aims at ensuring the protection of its employees living in countries with anti-homosexuality laws. In other words, the `Legalize Love' campaign will essentially work towards the creation of a safe workplace environment for the LGBT community, in all countries.
For its `Legalize Love' initiative, Google is working out collaborations with other international companies, seeking their help in creating a safe and comfortable work environment for all LGBT employees. Some of the companies which have already signed up for the initiative include Citigroup and Ernst & Young.
About the campaign, a Google spokesperson said that the company feels that the workplace safety of LGBT employees is an issue which needs to be addressed legally in countries that have specific anti-gay laws; and added that the key objective of the campaign is "to promote safer conditions for gay and lesbian people inside and outside the office."
