UPDATE: The rainbow Doodle is featured on Google's Russian site as well. How's that for "gay propaganda," Vlad?
Screenshot of the Russian version is after the jump.
On the eve of Vladimir Putin's Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia -- marred by controversy over the country's draconian crackdown on LGBT human rights -- web giant Google is making a bold show of support for LGBT people.
Check out its latest Google Doodle, which is live on the site right now:
The quote underneath is from the Olympic Charter, and it reads:
"The practice of sport is a human right. Every individual must have the possibility of practicing sport, without discrimination of any kind and in the Olympic spirit, which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play."
Clicking the image takes you to a search for the Olympic Charter; the Google logo on the search page has a rainbow backdrop.
Well played, Google. Thanks for once again taking a stand for LGBT equality and showing solidarity with Russia's persecuted LGBT community!
