United Parcel Service united with the gays today. Well, gay business owners, at least.
The international courier signed on as a partner with the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, thus giving it access to millions of bent businesses. UPS diversity director Lisa Johnson lauded the move as both economically and socially progressive:
Partnering with the NGLCC not only helps LGBT businesses grow by conducting business with UPS, but we also gain access to excellent suppliers. Expanding our process to include LGBT-owned businesses reinforces our commitment to supplier diversity.
