Google Fantastic initiative by Google. Anna Peirano details: "Google is launching a new campaign called 'Legalize Love' with the intention of inspiring countries to legalize marriage for lesbian, gay, and bisexual people around the world. The 'Legalize Love' campaign officially launches in Poland and Singapore on Saturday, July 7th. Google intends to eventually expand the initiative to every country where the company has an office, and will focus on places with homophobic cultures, where anti-gay laws exist." As proud as I am of living in the first country to legalise same-sex marriage, it's easy to forget we only did so in 2000. Also, it's about time the large technology companies of the world started using their power, reach, and money to do good. Hopefully, this initiative will transcend company boundaries, uniting them behind a common, noble goal.

I don't know what's with that all "homophobic Poland" black PR s*t in recent years. Seems like it's an easy target for all gay organization to point a finger on, because overall weak international position.
Funny it all started with misguided president of my city blocking equality march 7 years ago. All really happened *once*. 3rd most important (voted) party in the parliament has a vocal gay activist as a vice president. Google could start their fight with prejudice without showing it in the first place.
