Deep breath… Disney, Apple, Amazon, IBM, Levi’s, Delta Airlines, Starbucks and hundreds more giant US companies have shown their support for Joe Biden’s purported Equality Act which would update the law in the USA to protect the rights of LGBTQ+ people in their daily life.
Of course, it’s a dog whistle for the conservative right wing religious brigade who once again bring up the usual scaremongering about men creeping into female-only spaces in order to commit crimes by pretending to be trans women.
David Alphonso, the President of the Human Rights Campaign said: ‘We are seeing growing support from business leaders because they understand that the Equality Act is good for their employees, good for their business and good for our country. Employers care about their employees’ ability to rent an apartment, send their kids to school, visit the dentist, and pick up the groceries free from discrimination.’
He continued ‘Thank you to every company that is speaking up and advocating for the passage of the Equality Act. It’s time for the Senate to listen to the business community and the public and pass this long-overdue legislation’
