Black Friday corporate equality product guide

The 2019 Corporate Equality Index from the Human Rights Campaign:

This year, 571 businesses earned the CEI’s top score of 100, meeting new and higher benchmarks -- including a record number offering transgender-inclusive health care policies -- in the most comprehensive assessment of workplace LGBTQ inclusion in the 17-year history of the report.

More than 170 top businesses -- including 110 that have earned top scores on the CEI -- are also corporate supporters on the Equality Act, critically important bipartisan legislation that would finally add clear, comprehensive non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people to our nation's civil rights laws. The LGBTQ community is not explicitly protected by federal non-discrimination law, but these companies are bridging that gap for their employees and their families.

You can read the entire report here, and I'm going to drop an extensive list of companies below the fold. Keep in mind, many of the companies listed have other issues with which you may be concerned (like DuPont and Monsanto), so don't take this as an outright endorsement of them. But they still deserve to be recognized for LGBTQ equality efforts, and you will have to decide if they pass your test:
