I’m not really in favor of supporting a 3rd party candidate. The chances of them getting enough votes to win is worse than your chances of winning the lottery.

Queer persons need to stop dissing corporate involvement in the queer community and start seeking ways to be in partnership with business’s efforts to achieve protections that enhance and support diversity and inclusion.
