It’s been 50 years since the New York Police Department raided the Stonewall Inn, inciting days of protests that ultimately sparked the gay liberation movement and led to the first-ever pride parade a year later.
In the half-century since then, Pride has evolved into a spectacle of rainbows, floats, face paint and glitter. Here in Ireland, Dublin Pride has come a long way from its 1974 roots, when just 10 people marched — this year’s parade will be led by 70 LGBTQ+ organisations and community groups as well as global companies including Amazon, Microsoft, Adobe and Dell EMC.
But supporting LGBTQ+ rights requires more than waving a rainbow flag once a year. Here are three companies doing the right thing all year round — and some steps your organisation can take to become more inclusive.
