If it wasn’t already clear from the colorful update they gave the sign of their New York offices in honor of LGBTQ Pride month, Google is a fan of the gays. But if missed that show of support, the folks behind Google Docs have embedded an adorable Easter egg in the spreadsheet app that cheerily queers your quarterly budget when you type the letters P-R-I-D-E across the top row.

Additionally, if you search “gay pride” on the main Google page, a fetching geometric rainbow treatment appears above the results. These nods to Pride represent a welcome “hang-in-there” for those of us itching to get out of the office for celebrations in various cities this weekend.
