Hardly a day goes by anymore, that a positive LBGT story, article or report doesn’t get presented by some form of the media, and to think, it hasn’t been that long ago, when all I seemed to hear or read was either negative or heartbreaking. That said, I’m not saying they no longer exist, I’m just saying, I get a mental uplift more often than I used to, as is the case for the recently held 2014 San Francisco Pride Event, where Silicon Valley connects with Pride…

I love my Windows phone, but I’ve been a supporter of Google (mostly) from the beginning. Also I’m a sucker for good commercials. Which do you like better?
Mother’s day is coming up fast everyone, and from The New Yorker to Google, big businesses are saluting all different types of mothers in our lives. In Google’s own 1 minute video celebrating Mother’s Day, they dug through the archive to find the most aww-inducing clips with mothers they could find. I’m happy to say they included a clip from the first video a lesbian couple did with their newborn, and a clip of YouTuber Mallow610 (Daniel) coming out to his mom. Both are some super heartwarming videos. Check them out after the jump!

I’ve seen it again and again since then and every time I see it I think, “I want to share that our readers!” The Browser Wars are fierce these days and I’ve used Mozilla and Chrome and Safari for extended periods of time over the last two years and I keep coming back to the Original. Even if you’re not an Internet Explorer fan like me this video is super cool.
The advertising giant (and damn-near controller of the internet) Google officially launched it’s campaign “Legalise Love” in Poland and Singapore over the weekend. The campaign aims to tackle LGBT discrimination through grassroots organizations and small businesses and will focus on countries with a homophobic culture and anti-gay laws.
Speaking at the Global LGBT Workplace Summit in London, Google executive Mark Palmer- Edgecumbe said “We want our employees who are gay or lesbian or transgender to have the same experience outside the office as they do in the office. It is obviously a very ambitious piece of work.”
Of course this is also a business decision for Google, explains Palmer-Edgecumbe. “We operate in many countries and have a very globally mobile workforce. We have had a number of instances where we have been trying to hire people into countries where there are these issues and have been unable to put the best person into a job in that country.“
