Though recent years have seen massive strides towards global equality for the Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, Bisexual, and Queer (LGBTQ) communities there’s still a long way to go.
Despite progress in many nations in Europe and the Americas, the LGBTQ community still faces massive legalized discrimination and persecution in much of the world, including in otherwise advanced countries like India. We believe that if customers use their purchasing power to send a message to governments of these countries and the companies in them that they will not support them unless and until they provide fully equal treatment under the law to the LGBTQ community, that we will bring about the change needed to protect and support members of the community wherever they live around the world.
We provide a LGBTQ Equality SweetScore for each country and each US state we track.
You can see how SweetScores on this and other Issues are determined at About SweetScores.
