Google marks 50 years of Pride parade with slide show doodle
Internet search engine and technology giant Google has marked fifty years of Pride parade with a slide show doodle depicting the advance made by the global lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTQ+) community for its acceptance and rights. The slides can be seen clicking the play button of the doodle on the homepage of Google.

"Today's slideshow Doodle celebrates 50 years of Pride by taking us through five decades of Pride history - all told through the lens of a growing, evolving, and international Pride parade!" stated the Google Doodle blog.

While sharing the making of the doodle, the artist Nate Swinehart says, "The Pride Parade is a symbol of celebration and liberation for the entire LGBTQ+ community. From its early days of activism on Christopher Street in New York City, to the worldwide celebrations of today, it has empowered and given voice to a bright and vibrant community."

He adds that in celebrating 50 years of Pride, my co-worker Cynthia Cheng first had the idea to depict the parade itself and show it growing in size and momentum across the decades. 

In many western countries, June is LGBTQ Pride Month and cities across the world celebrate and commemorate the progress that LGBTQ people have made in history of the movement.

One thing the gay rights movement taught the world is the importance of being visible, says Charles M Blow.
