apple-logo-rainbow A recent study of 2,259 people aged 18 to 64 (1,502 straight and 757 gay) found Apple to be the second most gay-friendly company behind the Bravo television network, according to MacNN.

Other gay-friendly brands include Showtime, HBO, Absolut, and Levi’s. The least gay-friendly brands include Walmart, Dunkin Donuts, Cracker Barrel, Exxon Mobil, and Samsung. Samsung? Interesting. The full press release can be found here.
