Gay-rights group's award likes Facebook for being inclusive6/2/2012
Facebook will definitely get a rainbow-colored "like" this evening from the gay and lesbian community when the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation gives it a media award for inclusion and equality. The award from the prominent gay rights group comes after Facebook has launched equality initiatives in recent years, such as rallying against bullying and changing options for relationship statuses to include LGBT partners. Facebook has also participated in events such as Spirit Day, where employees turned their profile pictures purple to show support for LGBT youth. The GLAAD event will go down at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis in California and, though it's certain to draw some criticism, seems to be just the latest evidence of shifting attitudes toward the LGBT community.
Do you think Facebook deserves this award?
