In the early 1990s, a group of gay and lesbian employees at P&G in Cincinnati banded together to fight for equality in their workplace. It seemed like an impossible dream—while P&G was one of the first Fortune 500 companies to add “sexual orientation” to its EEO (equal employment opportunity) statement in 1992, the company’s leadership was conservative and fellow employees were openly homophobic. And, in 1993, Cincinnati passed Article XII, an amendment that prevented any laws aimed at protecting gays and lesbians. It was a hostile environment and a difficult time for employees to openly be themselves. Still, the group, which called itself GABLE, persisted. Slowly but surely, they found allies, educated their colleagues and won big victories—including benefits for domestic partners. Today, GABLE has 5,000 members in more than 50 countries, and P&G is one of the most LGBTQ-friendly companies in the world. Meet the pioneers who risked everything to change P&G’s corporate culture for the better. This Great Big Film was made by P&G.
