Parcel Service now United with gays

by Jeremy Hooper

Are you a staunch supporter of FedEx? Well if you're a lover of the 'mosexual set, then you might want to also give their biggest competitor a looksie.

Picture 9-74Last year UPS gained unfavorable gay attention when they failed to recognize a New Jersey civil union as a marriage (a situation they later remedied). But now, in happier gay news, the brownest of all delivery companies has announced that they're partnering with the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, which will expand the company's supplier diversity process to include LGBT-owned and operated businesses. See release for more:

So if you're going to give a ship to an item and you also give a ship about gay equality, then you might want to factor this progressive move into your delivery options. By using your consumer dollar, you have the power to change policies for the better (though it'll cost you extra if you want to those changes delivered next day, overnight).
