Google Goes Gay


If you type the word “gay” into Google Wednesday, the search box turns rainbow, the colors of the gay pride flag. Just sayin’.

In a historic ruling this morning, the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which was signed by Bill Clinton 17 years ago and defined marriage as a union between a man and a woman. In a 5-4 decision, the highest court decided that the federal law was an unconstitutional violation of the Fifth Amendment.

Supporters are celebrating the ruling on Facebook by changing their profile pictures back to the Human Rights Campaign’s red-and-pink equal sign – and its parodies – images that went viral in March when the Supreme Court began hearing the same-sex marriage cases.

About thepositivevoice

We originally set out to advocate and campaign for and on behalf of people living with HIV in Greater Manchester. But we chose to slightly change our name by adding beyond. Therefore our name is Greater Manchester & Beyond of People Living With HIV & AIDS. Cause there are many issues that affects people living with HIV we now look ate other health and social care issues that will affect people living with HIV in their everyday lives. For the purpose of this site we have chosen a strap-line name hence our user name here - this is of course "thepositivevoice". The reason for this is often the issues that affect us can be quite daunting and discriminatory to our very existence. So whatever negative we hear and see - we endeavour to turn that into a positive. There are many examples where a negative has turned into a positive and one of those example is the term "Queer" - well that is also quite interesting as some people in the lesbian and gay community don't like that very word - some have decided to own it. Therefore any person that calls another person (the example here) queer - some gay people will reply yes we are. As time moves on and I as the author of this blog - information will be never-ending. So watch this space.
