Businesses encouraged to support LGBT community

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE (AP) - The Tennessee Equality Project is starting a new initiative to encourage business to show support for the state's gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

Executive director Christopher Sanders says the group is providing business owners with small "Equality Means Business" window stickers to place on their front doors. Sanders said the stickers show that a business agrees to hire employees and serve the public without regard to sexual orientation or gender identity.

The group also is keeping a list of businesses that support the initiative on its Facebook page.
