Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

The Washington, D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign Foundation -- which bills itself as "the nation’s largest gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization" -- has released its list of the Best Places to Work 2008, and four local companies made the cut: American Airlines, GameStop, Brinker International and J.C. Penney.

For American Airlines, which got a perfect score on the HRCF's ranking, it's particularly good timing: The company, already a major player in marketing itself to the LGBT traveler, has launched a new ad campaign with a series of retro ads -- though, as Queerty notes, "What gay man wears Hawaiian shirts? Not to mention socks with loafers." In related news, Dirk Nowitzki has a wedding proposal to consider. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
