HRC Buying Guide - Finding LGBT Friendly Businesses

The Human Rights Campaign has a helpful guide for finding LGBT Friendly businesses. As demonstrated by the recent Chick fil A controversy, we need to be more cognizant of where we spend out dollars, opting to patronize businesses which are LGBT Friendly and support our equality, in everything from employment to marriage equality.

The site provides a great search engine to search by category to find companies based on your needs. Click on the link below to access the site.

Gay Central Valley will also continue to highlight LGBT Friendly Businesses in the Fresno and Central Valley area...

More than ever, consumers are sending a message to businesses that they are watching. They are watching to see if the businesses they patronize understand and honor issues important to them, giving buying power to issues ranging from LGBT inclusiveness to environmental protection. Corporate social responsibility has become an imperative for a successful business. With Buying for Workplace Equality, we hope to harness that power by providing you with the most accurate review of a business's workplace policies toward LGBT employees.
Whether you are buying a cup of coffee or renovating your home, by supporting businesses that support workplace equality you send a powerful message that LGBT inclusion is good for the bottom line. We hope that you will use this guide as one component when determining if a business's social practices make it worthy of your dollars.
