no, still not safe to go back to Coors

Boycott Coors, still.

The National Lawyers Guild's Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Committee is
disappointed at Out Front Colorado's refusal to run its advertisement
educating the queer community on the Coors family's funding of bigoted
activities, and released a statement June 13. Out Front is one of the main LGBT papers in Denver.

The Coors' family seeks to maximize profits but hide its politics, including its involvement with right-wing politicians and political organizations which aggressively seek to roll back even progressive laws and gay rights already established and recognized.

A slick PR campaign has flooded our [queer] community with claims that Coors Brewing is now our friend—that Coors has domestic partner benefits, sponsors LGBT groups and events (usually in return for having the Coors logo prominently displayed), and that there are gay members of the Coors family. Some of this is true, but what they leave out is that the Coors family continues to give millions of dollars to our enemies
The Coors family has a long history of supporting racist and anti-gay groups, and their support of anti-gay bigots continues today. We could fill this newspaper [This text is from ads palced in the press] with more examples. When you buy Coors products, you enrich a family that gives millions to our worst enemies.

Coors products include Coors, Coors Light, Killian’s Red, Zima, Keystone, Belgian White or Blue Moon.
