The Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Buying for Workplace Equality App is your
guide to brands and products from businesses that support LGBTQ
workplace equality — businesses that don’t discriminate based on
sexual orientation and gender identity, that provide benefits for LGBTQ
employees and their families and that respectfully market to or
recruit employees from the LGBTQ community.

Based on the HRC Foundation's Corporate Equality Index rating (,
businesses -- and their products -- are divided into red (brands that
receive our lowest workplace quality scores), yellow (brands that have
made some progress and receive moderate workplace equality scores) and
green (brands that receive our highest workplace equality scores)
categories to help consumers support businesses that have inclusive
LGBTQ workplace policies.

- Find thousands of LGBTQ-friendly businesses and their products;
search by shopping category or browse alphabetically.
- Browse distinct shopping categories like Food, Apparel, Household
Products and Banking & Finance.

Ratings and Reviews


Vote with your dollar

Thank you HRC for creating this great app. I have to say, some companies on the list surprised me and I'll change my shopping habits because this list.

The app could be easier to use; it's not the best design. But it gets the job done.


Cash is Power - and to the bigots who are against this app

Cash is power. Yes we can use this app to help us in making our daily buying decisions with businesses that don't discriminate. If there was a similar app for race discrimination I'd buy it. If there was one for discrimination against women I'd buy it. Hate is hate pure and simple. And for those of you bigots who can't seem to support this app or don't understand it, some day maybe someone will write an app that identifies individual human beings that are discriminating bigots like you. Then we can stop talking or interacting with you. Then maybe you'd understand what this is all about. This is about businesses who discriminate against basic human rights for GLBT persons. Whether it's hate for those with a different skin color, those of a different race, those with a different gender identity or sexual orientation, those of a different religion, it's all bigotry and discrimination against your fellow human beings. But in your case I use that term "human being" loosely.


Updating takes a while and remember to read each score card!!!

The update once you open the app takes a while, but it should finish in about 5 minutes. Mine did anyway. If you get to 10 minutes and it hasn't finished, and you're using wireless, not just 3G, then I'd say something's wrong with the app. Try deleting it and reinstalling.

Some of the ratings are inaccurate in the app. For example, under restaurants Bob Evans is listed as only having a score of 15 (which is a very low score), but when you click to view the full score card it says they have a lot more positive points! When added up their score should be 85, putting them in the green section. I don't know whether the score card is wrong or the calculation and thus placement on the list is incorrect, but if you're looking into a certain brand read the score card before dismissing it as bad if it's in the red zone. HRC, look into fixing this for the next update.
