List Rules Vote up the companies that you feel are the strongest LGBT allies

The gay friendly companies on this list that support the LGBT community should be recognized and commended. The LGBT rights movement has seen many ups and downs throughout its history. But thanks to the 2015 Supreme Court ruling allowing same sex marriage across the country, things are finally looking up. But that doesn't mean the battle is over. There are numerous charities and organizations fighting for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender humans across the world. And they're always in need of some extra support from LGTB friendly companies in mainstream media. That's why many very popular and widely used brands are creating specialty products or viral content to show their support for the LGBT community. Take a look at this list of the brands that support gay rights and see if your favorites made the list.

This list of LGBT friendly brands is full of a few surprises, along some very creative ways of showing support. It includes clothing brands, snack makers, and even a beer company. Some ideas are flashy, some are subtle, and all are necessary.

With the help of these brands, we are able to portray LGBT lifestyles in a positive way for the general public to hopefully learn to appreciate. Take a look at this list of brands and vote for the one you think is the strongest LGBT ally.

It depicts two men heading to get married, when they are stopped by a woman who says "I won't let you blemish the sanctity of marriage!"
