The anti-gay christian extremist hate group The American Family Association is declaring victory over Home Depot over a boycott it started two years ago due to The Home Depot’s conspicuous corporate presence at gay pride events, announced on Friday that Home Depot’s ostentatious gay friendliness has been curbed.
- In 2009 and 2010, Home Depot sponsored and marched in at least 16 separate gay pride events. After the boycott began, Home Depot’s participation dropped to just four events in 2011.
- Home Depot has ordered its employees to stop wearing its highly recognized orange aprons to any homosexual-themed events.
- Home Depot’s philanthropy arm, The Home Depot Foundation, now prohibits grants to “festivals” and denies requests for workshop kits and aprons. These had shown up at homosexual events on a regular basis.
If this is true Home Depot has alot to answer for with the LGBT Community for caving to extremist christians. But whats really strange about this is that the AFA is urging its members to CONTINUE the boycott to keep at it — to “support the boycott even more” —
