21 Companies That Have Supported LGBT Rights

 

It’s that time of year again — we’re all feeling the pressure to go out and Spend! Spend! Spend! during the massive post-Thanksgiving Black Friday sales and beyond. But are you sure that your hard earned paycheck will be going to companies and organizations that support the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Americans?

 

It can be tough to tell. However, over the past several years many, many companies have revealed themselves to be vocal allies of the queer community — and some are even run by queer people themselves.

 

So, we thought Black Friday was a great time to look at 21 companies and brands that have done right by the queer community in the past, either by creating pro-queer ads or supporting pro-queer legislation or both (and some have even faced boycotts for doing so). This obviously isn’t an exhaustive list — just a few that instantly came to mind. Feel free to share your favorite pro-queer companies and brands in the comments section below.

 

Happy shopping!
