Starbucks raises a Gay Pride flag above their headquarters in Seattle that will remain throughout the Seattle Gay Pride Parade weekend. Anthony Hesseltine, a member of Starbucks Partner Pride Alliance Network:
Not everyone will approve of Starbucks flying the Pride flag. I don’t wish any harm by having the flag fly, but I do want people to reflect. The whole message is about diversity and accepting people for their differences. If you think about a rainbow, no one color is dominant. It’s a harmonization of different colors, each color contributing to the whole.
