Gay or Not, "Best Places to Work for GLBT Equality" is a Must See

The “Best Places to Work for GLBT Equality” is a list everyone should consult when looking for employment. If a company is chosen by The Human Rights Campaign Foundation, the nation’s largest GLBT civil rights organization, it almost guarantees the company is an all around fair employer. In order to be chosen, 195 companies must score a perfect 100% on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index which measures policies and practices implemented to promote fairness and equality in the workplace for GLBT employees.

I think this is true of most big companies today. The company I work for is not listed but my partner and I get the same benefits that all of these companies offer.
