LGBT+ Advocates Aim to Influence Amazonís HQ2 Choice

Activists are calling on Amazon to reject some of the cities on its list of 20 finalists for a second headquarters due to unfriendly policies toward LGBT+ workers. A campaign is underway to discourage Amazon from choosing cities such as Atlanta, Dallas, Indianapolis, or Miami—whose states still permit employment, housing, and public accommodations discrimination.

According to CNNMoney, “As a part of a demonstration on [Feb. 1], a plane with a banner touting the campaign's name—‘No Gay? No Way!’—is flying near the company’s Seattle headquarters.” Other initiatives include digital ads in Seattle and the nine objectionable states, as well as a traveling billboard in Seattle saying, “Hey, Alexa? Why would Amazon even consider putting HQ2 in a state that discriminates against LGBT people?"
