Amazon has a record of being in support of the LGBTQ community, however a recent incident at one of their shipping warehouses in Kentucky has cast a pall over the company. A man and his transgender wife worked for Amazon at the Warehouse from 2014 to 2015, and they eventually resigned because the hostile work environment was simply too much for them to endure.
The couple sued Amazon and they claim that employees at the company harassed them, targeted them with slurs, and that their superiors at the company eventually retaliated against them. The conditions were too much, and they quite in disgust. They hope their lawsuit holds Amazon accountable for not doing more to support them.
