MillerCoors: From Gay Boycott to Gay Brandhttp://www.edgemedianetwork.com/business_finance/corporate/147325/millercoors:_from_gay_boycott_to_gay_brand
MillerCoors is a model corporate citizen, with a solid 100 from the Human Rights Campaign
In 1977, Coors was accused of firing employees because of their sexual orientation. What especially galled gay consumers was the funding of anti-gay groups by a foundation set up by the Coors family.
That was then. By 1993, Coors had encouraged a "Lesbian and Gay Employee Resource" (LAGER, get it?). Two years later, Coors went much further, to become one of the few major publicly traded companies to extend employee benefits to same-sex partners.
The company’s chairman at the time, Pete Coors, was criticized for having become so gay friendly during his 2004 Republican primary campaign to become a U.S. senator from Colorado. He bucked his party when he vigorously defended the policy.
What better indication of how much MillerCoors rankles than a 2012 "boycott" by a bar in Idaho. The company’s response? "MillerCoors has a strong track record of supporting the diversity of our employees as well as the communities in which we work and live," a spokesperson told the media. "Due to the diversity and breadth of our consumers and because we believe in supporting the many communities we serve, we support myriad organizations across the country we are proud to support."
