Google Celebrates 50 Years of ‘Pride Month’ With a Great 3D Doodle

Google is celebrating 50 years of the ‘Pride Month’ in its own way by coming up with a 3D doodle. The Pride Month is a sexual minority movement, which was started in June 1969. Back then, the month of June was chosen for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots. They occurred at the end of June 1969.

Many pride events are held during this month for recognizing the impact LGBT have had in the world.

And adding to it, Google also welcomed the Pride Month in its own way with a brilliant 3D doodle. The doodle shows a journey of the pride parade and the history of its significance.

Pride Parade is a symbol of celebration and freedom for the whole LGBT community. The parade has empowered and given voice to the people of this community.

Doodler Nate Swineheart, who came up with the doodle on Pride Month, shared his own feelings and ideas about the making of the doodle itself.

“In celebrating 50 years of Pride, my co-worker Cynthia Cheng first had the idea to depict the parade itself and show it growing in size and momentum across the decades. Inspired by this concept, I began exploring different styles that could fully capture the feeling of a growing parade and relate to all who are a part of it. After several experiments, I landed on the idea of using strips of cut paper to depict the people and setting,” he said.

Google Doodle Art Director, Erich Nagler, also shared his experiences regarding the LGBT community, from his college days.

He said that when he was 18 years old, he went to college in New York City, and “even as I was still finding my way out of the closet, I found myself on a walk through Greenwich Village, across Seventh Avenue where the street grid shifts and the streets get names instead of numbers. I passed Sheridan Square onto Christopher Street, the historic gay heart of the city," he added.

Nagler also said that through the doodle, he and his team hoped to capture the expanding spirit of love and acceptance, for the LGBT community.
