8 Tech Companies That Support The LGBT Community

In honor of Pride Month, we are highlighting eight tech companies that champion LGBT rights. These companies celebrate pride by empowering and connecting members of the LGBT community.

We’ve assembled this list from a Crunchbase Pro search where we looked at companies that work to broaden the spectrum of life for the LGBTQ+ community. Many do so by creating a digital home where users can connect online and seek support. They address real-world issues and bring people together to embrace the diversity of the LGBT community.
