Thank you, Starbucks

Starbucks has officially backed gay marriage! In a January 24 letter to U.S. partners, Kalen Holmes, Starbucks executive vice president, expresses support for the gay marriage legislation in Washington State. The “important legislation,” says Holmes “is core to who we are and what we value as a company.”

The letter, which boasts of the company’s LGBT activism begins, “Starbucks is proud to join other leading Northwest employers in support of Washington State legislation recognizing marriage equality for same-sex couples.” The letter concludes: “We look forward to seeing this legislation enacted into law.”

Thank you, Starbucks!
