Buying for Equality 2010 helps us support businesses that support us with every purchase we make.

Despite the economic downturn, more businesses than ever rated 100 percent on the HRC Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index — the basis for this guide — through banning discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, providing benefits for LGBT employees and their families and supporting LGBT equality publicly. Find out more about the criteria.

Consumers can support businesses that support us through everyday purchases, but can also directly thank them for their support, ask them to revise their policies or encourage them to participate in the Corporate Equality Index. Take action now.

More than 300,000 people have used Buying for Equality to make informed purchases. You can do your part to support fair-minded businesses — download the guide or request a copy to be sent to you.
