Legalize Love. Thanks, Google.
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.
Hey, how about the US?
I have high hopes that this will be the last generation to see open conflict around homophobia and discrimination. It will never go away completely (I don’t have that kind of faith in humanity), but it will recede into the unacceptable shadows in most places.
But this will be the last generation in which there is even a viable debate to be had regarding same-sex marriage.
I’m an optimist. But I see the difference in attitudes in my generation and the next two, and I feel I have reason to be.
