Google celebrates gay pride with Easter egg

Internet giant Google marked Gay Pride with one of its Easter eggs: a rainbow ribbon that appears below the search bar.
 
The rainbow appears when a user types "Google Gay Pride," "LGBT," "gay," "lesbian," "NYC Gay Pride" and "SF Gay Pride," tech site Mashable said.
 
Mashable said Google has a history creating "whimsical" Easter eggs, often hidden in its search function.
 
It added Google is also known for its pro-gay rights stance.
 
Recently, Google publicly expressed its opposition to California’s Prop. 8, a constitutional amendment that took away the right of same-sex couples to marry, in a 2008 blog post written by co-founder Sergey Brin.
 
"While we respect the strongly-held beliefs that people have on both sides of this argument, we see this fundamentally as an issue of equality. We hope that California voters will vote no on Proposition 8 — we should not eliminate anyone’s fundamental rights, whatever their sexuality, to marry the person they love,” it quoted Brin as saying. — TJD, GMA News
