"I remember the first time I had a grape, I went, ‘Wow! This is quite tasty.’ It was absolutely ingrained so deeply in me: Never cross a picket line.” - VP Harris

What is friendly?
Author: TriSec    Date: 09/03/2022 11:30:05

Good Morning.

I work for what I have recently described as the "most gay-friendly company in the United States". While I can't speak for all our locations (some are in the deep South), here in the Northeast, there are no contra-indications.
