EA to hold activities, fly flags and participate in parades for LGBT Pride Month

Electronic Arts will celebrate LGBT pride month with several activities planned for next month, according to a post on EA's blog.

The company will fly a rainbow flag at its Redwood Shores headquarters, hold "a number of activities to celebrate Pride" for its employees and participate in Pride Parades throughout the year in Austin, Los Angeles, Orlando Seattle, San Francisco, Stockholm and Vancouver.

"EA employees will walk (and shout, and dance...) in these parades in the cities where we work to celebrate Pride and inclusion," the blog post reads. A banner celebrating EA's commitment to the cause appears below.
