Corporations donated to anti LGBTQ candidates

Despite it being Pride Month, a month-long, global effort to recognize LGBTQ+ members of society, corporations that display a rainbow flag on their logos continue to support political candidates who block or otherwise restrict equal rights based on gender or sexual orientation.

Major companies have been rated by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) 2020 Corporate Equality Index, a measurement that determines workplace policies and “public commitment to the LGBTQ community.” And while a number of companies scored a perfect 100, the index does not take into account political donations. So it did not factor in CVS’s past donations to Republican state Sens. Dawn Buckingham and Bryan Hughes, co-sponsors of SB1646, a bill that would classify gender-affirming care as child abuse, The Guardian reported.

According to a report released Monday by the newsletter Popular Information, CVS also supported North Carolina state senator Ralph Hise, and The Advocate has said that his primary sponsor of S514 is “the most repressive anti-transgender healthcare bill in the nation.”
