Stonewall Workplace Equality Index

The Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, showcasing the 100 most gay-friendly employers in the UK during the last year came out today, ahead of the official launch tomorrow. It's the second year Stonewall has published the list, and not surprisingly, like last year, the BBC isn't there. After all, who would want to work for an employer that thinks words like "gay" and "lesbian" are unsuitable for young people to hear.

Every family pays the licence fee so every family should be treated with equal respect. Some of the licence fee must go towards paying for the BBC's Diversity Centre, so the least that we should expect is that the Diversity is there to promote diversity, and not fight against it or try to keep the status quo. We shall see.
