Legalize Love

Google has started a global campaign in support of equal marriage rights for same-sex couples. The internet giant announced its Legalize Love campaign at the Global LGBT Workplace Summit 2012, which took place in London. The campaign was launched in Poland and Singapore. Organizers plan to expand the campaign to every country where Google has an office, focusing on countries where anti-gay sentiment runs high.

“Singapore wants to be a global financial centre and world leader and we can push them on the fact that being a global centre and a world leader means you have to treat all people the same, irrespective of their sexual orientation,” Google’s Palmer-Edgecumbe said of the decision to include Singapore in the campaign’s initial phase.

Not everyone is happy about [the need for] such a campaign though:

All this manpower, cash and effort could be going towards actual issues like cancer research, ending starvation etc etc etc… FUCK the religious for making gay marriage an issue at all and forcing all this debate and consumption of valuable resources towards something that’s none of their fucking business in the first place and should have never been an issue, there shouldn’t be anything to legalize and I’m sick of this.  –Redditor

It’s unclear if those homophobes who got their jimmies rustled over gay Oreos before will now switch to another search engine. Bing is out of question at least considering the donation of $200k for a marriage equality campaign by Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and CEO Steve Ballmer.

Sala Samobójców

Scenes from the polish teen drama Suicide Room (Sala Samobójców). A few more can be found here (including the theobligatory shower shot of course). Both videos contain spoilers.

[Boys on boys on screen] – Dominik & Aleks (Suicide Room)

As cute as the lead actor is, I didn’t see the film because the plot just sounds… meh. Or is it just me?

Dominik is an ordinary boy. He’s got loads of friends, the hottest girl in school, rich parents and money to spend on brand-name clothes. But one innocent kiss with a mate changes everything. He begins to isolate himself from the outside world, spending all his time on his computer. He meets an anonymous girl who introduces him to the "suicide room", a place from which there is no escape. Caught in a trap woven of his own emotions, he becomes entangled in a web of intrigue and gradually loses what he cherishes most.
