Raytheon/Boeing: When you think of Saudi Arabia, you probably think of expensive cars, blatant homophobia, and running up a genocide in Yemen that the UN has deemed “the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.” But what many of you don’t know is that Saudi Arabia is just a rich man’s San Francisco. When the good folks at Raytheon and Boeing Technologies go to visit their Saudi friends who they are actively supplying weapons that are being used to melt the faces of children off, they watched James Charles in the Ubers to restaurants, they belt Lil Nas X songs at the top of their lungs, and they hold people accountable on Twitter. That is what being an ally is all about.
McKesson: McKesson isn’t a corporation that’s paying billions of dollars to make up for their part in America’s rampant opioid crisis; they are a family. June is a great month for a few reasons: 1. Pride 2. The sunsets on a private jet to East Hampton while sipping a cocktail and not giving a fuck about the thousands of people in middle America you fucked over are lovely this time of year. I need McKesson to make a Tik Tok and collab Nikita Dragon. I want the Dragon with the suits. PRIDE!
Facebook: Is there a better corporation than Facebook? Like from a moral standpoint, these guys have been ahead of the curve with pride month for years now. When they sell your data, pride. When they influence elections, pride. And when they took down my company’s Instagram account, and we had layoffs, P.R.I.D.E.
Blackrock: I don’t know about you guys, but I like that everything is expensive now, and our government is constantly caught lying to us. Next fall when your parents are debating whether or not they can make enough sacrifices to send you back to college, you won’t be upset that Blackrock used data to massively fuck all of us because at the end of the day, Blackrock is here and they are queer. I don’t understand why people get so mad at corporations, and to me, it makes sense to get upset when Hollywood influencers that can’t read misspeak about the LGBTQ+ community. Let’s hold the right people accountable.
