A variant of the Google logo, representing their LGBT employees, known as Gayglers.

Gayglers is a term for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees of Google. The term was first used for all LGBT employees at the company in 2006, and was conceived as a portmanteau between "Google", the company they worked for, and "gay", a term referring to homosexual men, and by extension, LGBT people.[1]

Other than its own in-application resources, Google provides no way for users to report anti-LGBTQ+ and other hate speech violations on its platforms. There is presently no way for the public to get in contact with Google's internal LGBTQ+ teams or the "Gayglers" community within Google to report instances of hate speech or discrimination.[2][failed verification]
