Is Coca-Cola really LGBTQ friendly?
The Coca-Cola Company has earned top marks in Human Rights Campaign's 2021 Corporate Equality Index. However, while Coca-Cola has been promoting LGBTQ+ rights with its own employees, it has also been supporting several anti-LGBT politicians who have been promoting legislations that aim at restricting LGBTQ+ rights across many American states. Coca-Cola's overall LGBTQ+ rights score is reflective of both these factors.
