Google has launched a campaign called Legalize Love, aimed at discriminatory laws in countries like Singapore and Poland.

From CNN:

“We want our employees who are gay or lesbian or transgender to have the same experience outside the office as they do in the office,” Google executive Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe said at the Global LGBT Workplace Summit in London, according to a report on Dot429, a networking site for LGBT professionals. “It is obviously a very ambitious piece of work.”
Google will focus on developing alliances with local companies and on supporting grassroots organizing efforts. Citigroup and Ernst & Young have already signed on as partners.

 
The campaign is being painted in some circles here in the United States as a campaign for legalization of same-sex marriage in the United States but the focus appears to be more about policies and laws in other parts of the world. Google is known to be a very LGBT-friendly company to work for, offering full benefits to same-sex partners.
