Companies supporting LGBT employees

I found this article went well with our recent topic of The Lavender Scare that trickled down to private businesses. It highlights five companies who support and protect the LGBT community both within and outside their company.

The end of the article also mentions companies Chick-Fil-A and Barilla who have publicly stated a lack of support for same-sex marriage, despite retracting those statements due to poor publicity.

  1. I find corporate actions against or in favor of gay and trans- rights incredibly interesting especially since in many states gay people are not protected by discriminatory legislation or action; therefore, companies who decide to take a public stand either create incredible feelings of hostility towards the community or a sense of welcoming.
