Google’s Gay Pride Results

Searching for keywords like gay, lesbian or sf pride currently shows a rainbow-colored stripe at the top of the results. While well-intended, I wonder if editorial engagement in supposedly neutral-and-automated-as-possible result pages is the right way to go. Put differently, while I personally agree with the notion of promoting gay pride (much needed still in many to most countries of the world where there’s no full acceptance or equality), here I wonder if it’s expressed in the right place (i.e. on result pages instead of a company blog post, a homepage doodle and so on).

Also see talking gayglers with Google’s Bennet Marks.

[Thanks Caleb, D. and M.!]
