What is Rainbow Google?

Google also changed the right side of the organic search results for some holidays such as Christmas, Kwanzaa or Hanukkah.

What is Pride Month?

Gay Pride is a positive step against violence and discrimination towards gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. It aimed to promote dignity, self-affirmation, increase their visibility as a social group and celebrate sexual diversity as well as gender variance.

It is presently celebrated each year in the month of June in the honor of 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan.

In the month of June Pride parades are held which are (also known as pride marches, pride festivals and pride events) are events which celebrate LGBTI culture and pride. It also demonstrates legal rights like same-sex marriage.

The first pride march was held on June 27, 1970, where Chicago Gay Liberation organized a march.
