Apple and many other tech companies have offered benefits to same-sex couples (and sometimes made them a sticking point
) for quite some time now, but Google is taking its position of inclusion for sexual minorities outside the company itself; the company has announced an international campaign to promote legal marriage equality
for same-sex couples, called "Legalize Love."
