That’s an example of just how organised our American counterparts are on equal marriage. They also were able to get a lot of major corporations supporting it such as Microsoft, Starbucks and other major players in the business world. This is something that StonewallUK has never bothered with not realising that employers of that magntirude can play an extremely important role in furthering equality. Equal marriage is good for any economy and what better way to demonstrate that by having some of the world’s most influential companies supporting us?
That completely ignores the foundational part Stonewalls plays simply by hosting its LGBT Friendly Employers List every year.
This IS the same thing.
UK Employers clamour to be included in that list and take well deserved kudos from coming at the top of the list.
That doesn’t really mean anything Staircase2 unless they are putting out press released and writing letters in support of Marriage Equality. Here in the USA that clamoured to be included on our rosters as well but didn’t write any letters for Marriage Equality until recently.
Here is a link showing what they have done to try to move forward marriage equality – much different than clamouring to be on a list. http://www.advocate.com/politics/marriage-equality/2013/02/27/dozens-big-us-companies-come-out-support-marriage-equality
Am I terrible for person for changing my mind on Citizens United after I found it useful for the gay rights campaigns?
