Starbucks Loves Gay Marriage! They Said So!

Yay Starbucks!

Kalen Holmes, the executive VP of partner resources (and our new bff) has just sent this letter out to all of Starbucks' partners declaring their support of marriage equality!

Here's what she wrote:

Dear partners,

Starbucks is proud to join other leading Northwest employers in support of Washington State legislation recognizing marriage equality for same-sex couples. Starbucks strives to create a company culture that puts our partners first, and our company has a lengthy history of leading and supporting policies that promote equality and inclusion.

This important legislation is aligned with Starbucks business practices and upholds our belief in the equal treatment of partners. It is core to who we are and what we value as a company. We are proud of our Pride Alliance Partner Network group, which is one of the largest Employer Resource Groups for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) employees in the U.S., helping to raise awareness about issues in the communities where we live and work.

She reminded readers that for the last 20 years Starbucks has given offered medical benefits to same-sex parters — so this shiz anti nothing new!!

She ended the letter on a optimistic note, writing,

"We look forward to seeing this legislation enacted into law."

Us too sista!!!

This is great for the community and gives us the prefect excuse to break out diet and drink a frappuccino!

    Smart move,Gays have a large desposible income, unlike families with 3 kids
    so you want to cater to Gays
    Also with the price of coffee at Starbucks, Gays are some of the few people who can still afford to go there

    Re: raypearson – Yea, their coffee is not great however until there is equality in this world, this is news…Progress is being made and that is good.Re: jetfan – Again, until intolerance and discrimination AND bullying ends towards the homosexual community, this is NEWS. Major corporations showing unity is huge…perhaps you are just a straight person who does not get it…too bad for you.

    Translation : Our coffee may taste like used motor oil, but all our staff are as queer as a 3 dollar bill.
