Google is fighting for gay rights across the globe with its new “Legalize Love” campaign, the company announced on Saturday.

The company is hopping on the equal rights bandwagon and hopes to get as many on board as possible. With the campaign, Google is representing those that are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender. It’s sending the important message that anyone should be able to achieve the same benefits as the “traditional” couple, and not be treated any differently whether inside or outside the workplace.

Google is focusing on countries, like Singapore and Poland, which sees homosexual activities and same-sex couples as illegal.

According to dot429, Google Executive Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe said at the Global LGBT Workplace Summit in London, “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. It is obviously a very ambitious piece of work.”

Google is looking to establish alliances with local companies, in addition to supporting grassroots organizations. Citigroup and Ernst & Young have already joined the campaign.

“‘Legalize Love’ is a campaign to promote safer conditions for gay and lesbian people inside and outside the office in countries with anti-gay laws on the books,” Google said in a written statement.

Google is known for backing gay rights, especially in 2008 when it spoke out against California’s Prop 8 ban on gay marriage. The popular search engine also offers full benefits for same-sex couples and was named one of the “best places to work” of 2012 by the Human Rights Campaign.

It’s great to see Google, one of the top tech companies out there, sweeping the nation for such an important issue.
