Google Comes Out For LGBT Rights On Day Before Opening Ceremonies

“The practice of sport is a human right.”

On Thursday night, Google debuted a new doodle that both celebrates the 2014 Sochi Olympics while also alluding to LGBT rights and, presumably, Russia’s anti-LGBT propaganda law. If you click the image, you’re taken to a page of search results for the Olympic charter and the Google logo itself becomes a rainbow flag.

Update: The same doodle appears on Google Russia.

Update: Google declined to offer comment for this story. The company does have a history of using their site design to give subtle suport to LGBT rights.

This was what users saw when they searched for LGBT-related terms in June 2013.
