David, you should tell these folks to make a stink out of Human Rights 
Campaign cozy relations with Chevron. Chevron might be for "diversity" 
in their workplace, but what good is that if it is at the expense of 
Ecuadorian victims of their toxic spills. This is from the Chevron website:

Human Rights Campaign Recognizes Chevron

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation awarded Chevron a perfect score on 
its Corporate Equality Index for the fourth consecutive year. The 
foundation rated nearly 600 businesses on their policies and treatment 
of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) employees, consumers 
and investors. Chevron’s nondiscrimination policies, domestic-partner 
benefits, diversity training and PRIDE (Promote Respect, Inclusion and 
Dignity for Everyone) employee network were all factors in the 100 
percent rating, recognizing Chevron as a best place to work. The Human 
Rights Campaign is the largest U.S. civil rights organization working 
toward GLBT equality.
