EA Shows More Pride
Last year, EA surprised the world by participating in Pride parades in both San Francisco and Seattle (PopCap). Well, this year the company will outdo their previous efforts by expanding that support around the world.
EA announced on their blog
that they will march in Pride parades in Los Angeles, Stockholm, Vancouver, Austin and Orlando. Like last year, there will be plenty of singing, dancing, sign holding and free trinkets passed out to the crowds. The company will also fly a rainbow flag at their headquarters in Redwood Shores.
EA recently defended its business after being named the “Worst Company In America” by blaming anti-gay critics. COO Peter Moore claimed:
…we’re seeing posts on conservative web sites urging people to protest our LGBT policy by voting EA the Worst Company in America…If that’s what makes us the worst company, bring it on. Because we’re not caving on that.
Looks like Moore is keeping his word.
