June is a very important month as we celebrate and take notice of the LGBTQ community and its previous struggles for acceptance and equality. Now more than ever, inclusion and diversity are an essential part of the workplace, and several businesses have made great strides in promoting a workforce that represents the diversity of the country and affords opportunities for everyone, regardless of race, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

Opportunities for LGBTQ People in the Business Field 

One of the best and easiest ways to get started in the business world is through franchising. Many people in the business world have attested to the glass ceiling that exists in the halls of the institution called corporate America. Franchising allows for people from all walks of life to forge their own pathways and circumvent the glass ceiling together. There are several franchises that are queer-positive and provide a host of opportunities for people in the LGBTQ community. 

Franchises That Have Stood With the LGBTQ Community

If you want to enter the franchise world and want to represent a corporation that’s pro-LGBTQ friendly and queer-positive, here are some excellent choices. 

  • Starbucks Quite possibly one of the most successful franchises in history, Starbucks has always practiced inclusiveness and has long been a supportive ally.
  • McDonald’s The franchise that took the hamburger and combined it with the efficiency of an assembly line, McDonald’s and their parent company, Proctor & Gammel has contributed millions to the LGBTQ community over the years. 
  • Burger King One of the first fast-food chains to embrace the utilization of plant-based protein, Burger King has donated large sums of money to several human rights organizations including Amnesty International. 
  • Pizza Hut in 2021, Pizza Hut made its stance on queer positivity known when it debuted a pride-themed pizza box with a rainbow and coined the slogan “equality under one roof.”
