“Apple strongly supports marriage equality and we consider it a civil rights issue. We applaud the Supreme Court for its decisions today.”
Meanwhile, Google endorsed the decision by adding a hidden feature to its search results. Users searching for the keywords ‘gay ‘, ‘lesbian’ ‘bisexual’ and similar terms were presented with a rainbow banner around the search box.
“I’m proud that our country is moving in the right direction, and I’m happy for so many of my friends and their families. #PrideConnectsUs”
IT veteran Hewlett-Packard also weighed in. Michael Thacker of the HP Pride Employee Resource Group declared:
“HP has more than 30 years of partnership with and participation in pride events, and works throughout the year to build and strengthen HP as an organization that values all employees, customers and communities.”
