HOLD TIGHT, EVERYWHERE!

Google’s employee resource group PRIDE, made up of Gagylers and allies, will once again be sailing along the Amsterdam Canals! Google’s PRIDE group not only leads the way in celebrating Pride, but is also committed to building an inclusive workplace by providing a psychologically safe space for Googlers to bring their best selves to work. In addition, members of the group donate their time to support the development of Google products, charity and internal company advocacy. Google is committed to supporting LGBTQ+-friendly businesses and safe spaces, so we can build a world where everyone belongs.

The theme of our float will be: “Hold Tight”.

Everyone should be able to be themselves 100% and express themselves, even if they do not fit into the usual boxes. For many people, walking down the street hand in hand with their partner or dressing up for a party is the most normal and cheerful thing you can do. But what if you deviate from the norm and are looked at, discriminated against and accosted every time you step outside the door? Unfortunately, for those of us who do not conform to the imposed norms, this can be an everyday experience. We believe that everyone should be able to hold the hands of those they love and be 100% themselves wherever they go.
