Rite-wing pharmacy?

Over at Lesbiatopia.com, someone from New York City posted a photograph they had taken of a sign taped to the door of a Rite Aid Pharmacy in the West Village in which the management made their feelings on lesbians and gays very clear

“This store does not believe in gay and lesbian marriages. Any same-sex activity which includes kissing, hugging, touching or anything that would make our customers feel uncomfortable is prohibited in the store.”

Well, I checked online, and I could not find any Rite AID Pharmacies in Texas. But I did find this statement on”Diversity” on Rite Aid’s corporate Web site:

Diversity expands beyond race, religion, color, sex (including gender and sexual orientation), disability, age, or national origin. It also includes differences such as corporate tenure, marital status, personal beliefs, and education level. At Rite Aid, we embrace our differences and strive to create an environment where every associate is valued individually and as a team member, treated with respect, and encouraged to do his or her best work.”

Something’s not adding up! If you wanted to call Rite Aid and ask them how they REALLY feel about LGBT people, here are the numbers, again thanks to Lesbiatopia.com: 717-731-6566 or 717-975-5718.
