Research among LGBT consumers shows that majority of us want to spend our money with companies that have progressive policies towards their LGBT employees. The only problem is, that information hasn’t been easy to find — until now.

Gaywheels.com has done the footwork and offers this list of gay-friendly manufacturers that sell vehicles in the USA. To be considered gay-friendly, an automakers must, at a minimum, have a policy that prohibits workplace discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

Once you’re armed with the information, you have the choice whether or not to spend your money with companies that are gay-friendly. Of course, we encourage you to vote with your checkbook and support companies who treat their LGBT employees equally.
