The LGBTQ community has made incredible strides in the past year including the Supreme Court ruling all same-sex marriage legal. Yet who runs these small and large LGBTQ and Gay Pride organizations? It turns out that it is the private prison industry and Wells Fargo. Basically, the large corporation Wells Fargo owns a substantial amount of shares in the three largest private prison companies. These private prison companies own many prison and detention centers that are run for profit and act like businesses. Wells Fargo is also a major lender and supporter of the LGBTQ community. When you connect the dots you can see that since the private prison industry has a large effect on Wells Fargo, so does Wells Fargo on the LGBTQ. So why does Wells Fargo own and donate to them? Wells Fargo owns a lot of the private prison companies to earn money and donates lots of money to LGBTQ organizations because it makes them look good. Wells Fargo has consistently stayed at the top of every ethical list with a rating of 100% on HRC’s 2016 Corporate Equality Index. This is troubling to the few people who have realized this because the LGBTQ community is not a supporter of the private prison industry. Not only do they generally disprove of imprisoning for profit, they are disgusted that they are funded by the same company that profits off imprisoning the LGBTQ family. This calls for an immediate revoke of sponsorship from Wells Fargo by the LGBTQ community.
