+ By The Human Rights Campaign

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Buying for Workplace Equality App is your guide to brands and products from businesses that support LGBT workplace equality — businesses that don’t discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity, that provide benefits for LGBT employees and their families and that respectfully market to or recruit employees from the LGBT community.

Based on the HRC Foundation's Corporate Equality Index rating (www.hrc.org/cei), businesses -- and their products -- are divided into red (brands that receive our lowest workplace quality scores), yellow (brands that have made some progress and receive moderate workplace equality scores) and green (brands that receive our highest workplace equality scores) categories to help consumers support businesses that have inclusive LGBT workplace policies.

Features:

- Find thousands of LGBT-friendly businesses and their products; search by shopping category or browse alphabetically.
- Browse distinct shopping categories like Food, Apparel, Household Products and Banking & Finance.
- View detailed information about each business’ rating of LGBT-inclusive workplace policies from the HRC Corporate Equality Index.
- E-mail, Tweet or post Facebook status messages about your favorite and least favorite brands to your friends and family.

    I support the HRC and would like to vote with my dollars, but this app won't open on the Samsung Note 3... it just shows a "loading" message that never completes.

    Glad to support the efforts for equality, and this app helps me know which companies and corporations deserve my support as well. Keep up the good work HRC!

    Have been looking for HRC to finally release this as an app for ever! I was quite excited when I finally saw they released this, only to have cold water quickly thrown on that when I saw the app does nothing but hang on my Droid Charge. :-(
