  • Description of the Project:
  • Up until recently, same sex marriage in France was illegal. To demonstrate how Google could truly enable new possibilities, we launched the world's first social same sex marriage on Google Hangout. We made it possible for French gay couples in Paris to get married online by a Belgian Mayor using hangout's video-conference facility. The ceremonies were broadcast live to the world and witnessed by many. Becoming an inspiration for gay communities across the globe, and igniting an online movement of symbolic weddings on Google which is still gaining momentum today as couples in Chile and Israel continue to be wed on the same platform.
