THE BIG LIST of 'gayest' companies in America

Posted By Joe Kovacs On 11/13/2012 @ 8:15 pm In Money,Politics,U.S. | No Comments

Is UPS the most “gay”-friendly company in America?

Some may be wondering after shipping giant United Parcel Service said it will no longer give money to the Boy Scouts of America as long as the group discriminates against homosexuals.

UPS is the second major corporation in recent days to yank funding from the scouts, following in the footsteps of computer chip maker Intel.

According to its tax return, the UPS Foundation donated more than $85,000 to the Boy Scouts last year.

“We promote an environment of diversity and inclusion,” UPS spokeswoman Kristen Petrella told the Associated Press Monday. “UPS is a company that does the right things for the right reasons.”

The Boy Scouts reiterated this year it was holding onto its policy of excluding openly homosexual youth and adults from being members and leaders.

But UPS is just one of many companies that have policies favoring homosexuals.

The pro-homosexual Human Rights Campaign has published its 2012 Corporate Equality Index.

The HRC ranks U.S. companies according to their support and non-support for “gay,” lesbian, bisexual and transgender causes. The scale is from zero to 100, with those closest to zero being firms that are not supportive of homosexual policies, and those nearest 100 being very “gay”-friendly.

The criteria include anti-discrimination protections, domestic partner benefits, diversity training and transgender-inclusive benefits.

In the first year of the CEI a decade ago, 13 businesses achieved a top score of 100 percent.

Now, 190 businesses achieved a top rating of 100 percent.

While there are many additional companies promoting the LGBT agenda, here is the latest list of companies scoring a perfect 100 percent on the index:
