Google celebrates 50 years of LGBTQ community with a special doodle

On the special occasion, marking 50 long years of pride and acceptance of the minority LGBTQ community, Google dedicated a special doodle to honour this celebration.  

Going back to history, about fifty years ago, one fine day a group of police officers in New York raided on a tiny Greenwich Village bar. Majority of the crowd that come to this bar are members of the gay community. This was the day, when the stonewall riots took place and till date the LGBTQ community fight for their rights.

This new doodle is created by Nate Swinehart using colourful strips. This innovative doodle depicts the pride parade that took place over the years. Designer Nate Swinehart spoke about the doodle, he said, "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". Through this doodle, the artist also shed light upon how the right for freedom by the LGBTQ community has been growing in momentum and size.
