Photo: Google Unveils Rainbow Logo To Stand Up For LGBT Rights During Sochi Games

With the opening ceremonies set to kick off for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, tech giant Google is making it known how it feels about Russia's anti-gay propaganda law. In a move that's sure to be praised by the LGBT community, Google has switched over to a rainbow logo that shows different winter sports, along with a quote from the Olympic Charter.

It was back on June 30th of 2013 that President Vladamir Putin signed into effect a law that bans "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations to minors". The law has been met with much criticism from around the world.
