LGBT Business: Headlines, Laws & Discrimination

gay business
Business (and, yes, LGBT business) makes the world go round. In order to survive in the modern world, everyone needs to make money one way or another. Our coverage of LGBT business spans many areas. In today’s culture, the most powerful forms of protest seem to be those revolving around financial decisions, specifically where you decide to spend your money. Case in point: the states of North Carolina and Indiana, and the Muslim fundamentalist nation of Brunei. Individuals in the LGBT community also face plenty of discrimination in the workplace, especially in certain heterosexual male-driven industries such as technology, manufacturing and even in the entertainment business. While our world is far from perfect, certain key business decisions can balance the scale, whether that be consumers punishing Chick-fil-A for its owner’s homophobic policies or Bruce Springsteen canceling a concert in North Carolina. Catch up on all of Hornet’s latest LGBT business news.
