Gay Pink Dollars – Where to Shop? and Where NOT to Shop!


This was VERY SURPRISING to me! Look who is on the NOT Side!
HARPO and OWN!   Netflix!  Neiman Marcus!!  Oh No!
With no federal employment nondiscrimination protections for LGBT
people, and limited state protections, corporate America has taken the
lead on fair workplace policies. That sentence might make one say,
“Thank goodness for corporations,” but the truth is that it also puts a
burden on the LGBT consumer. We must seek out and support businesses that treat LGBT employees and their families with dignity and respect.
But how do we do that when businesses don’t post their employment
policies in their windows, and even if they did, who wants to read a
manual before walking into a store?
Fortunately there is an easy way to determine which businesses support
LGBT equality, and it’s only a click away. The Human Rights Campaign
Foundation publishes the Corporate Equality Index annually. The CEI
rates the entire Fortune 1,000, the AmLaw 200 (the nation’s top
law firms) and other businesses on their equal employment opportunity
policies, employee benefits, organizational LGBT competency and their
public commitment to equality and responsible corporate citizenship. An
easy search at will
show you exactly which companies have shown a commitment to their LGBT
workers, and just as importantly, which companies have failed this large
segment of the workforce.
There is also a great PDF you can read, the reveals a lot about the businesses – good and bad!
So think TWICE, before giving your dollars to someone on the  NOT HERE side.
