Google has made their stance on LGBT equality very clear.

http://www.google.com/diversity/legalise-love.html

And yet their business practices might prove otherwise. It was recently announced that Google Fiber will be investing in Provo, UT, a city that has, until now, refused to pass a non-discrimination ordinance that would protect LGBT individuals from discrimination in housing and employment.

The Senators and Representatives from the City are just as bad and have done very little or nothing to move the non-discrimination bill through the state legislature. In fact, Senator Margaret Dayton R-Provo/Orem has been one of the staunchest opponents to the LGBT community.

Tell Google and Google Fiber they should apply pressure to the City they are about to invest millions into that they should become more inclusive and more LGBT friendly. If not, maybe Google should invest their money in a city that cares more about its people.

      It is conspicuous that lesbian and homosexual couples worldwide were brutally persecuted, often tortured, raped and killed, incarcerated, although they are live much happier together as heterosexual couples. Threaten these happy people worldwide men with their violence against women in heterosexual couples? This is precisely the fact. Homosexual men reject sexual violence against women and are often good friends of women. Lesbian women live together in peace with their children, without threat of domestic and sexual violence. So what is so terrible to live in lesbian and homosexual couples, I think in democratic countries should it be indifferent of sexual orientation and everyone can live the way he wants, especially the women.

      Provo is a backwards city of neanderthals!

      My childhood was in Utah, but now, I'm scared to live there. All I hear about is the hate Utah holds against LGBTQ citizens. Why won't you let this change? I love Utah's wonders, but they are not enough to bring me back.

      I am a gay man living near Provo, Utah. Google has been great towards LGBT people & I hope they'll continue that by making their technology contingent upon the adoption of protections for LGBT individuals.

      Google is gay friendly. Why would they invest in a city or state that is opposed to civil rights? Do NOT invest there until the city is civilly friendly to all.
