Google takes powerful stand on LGBT rights at the Olympics

In honor of the Sochi Winter Olympics, the tech giant changed its homepage logo to reflect the egalitarian spirit of the games. Not only does it feature athletes doing what they do best, it places them before a set of rainbow-colored panels. To underline their point, Google added this telling quote from the Olympic Charter:

“The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play.”

The doodle also appears Google’s Russian homepage

And they’re not the only company to make such a gesture
