This might be non-news in other countries.

In Israel, where ultra-orthodox politicians are opposing any public expression about sex or homosexuality, this is indeed news.

Even more, the writer of the post (Eran Neufeld) wrote that as far as he remembers, Google is the first company to march at the parade as a group – with a company logo.
