I thought it was illegal for an employer to discriminate against a homosexual employee. If this is the case, why publish this silly index which highlights seemingly "pro-gay" employers? I think Revenue should select people based upon merit, irrespective of sexual orientation, race, gender, religion and so on, and afford all employees equality of conditions of employment and opportunity.

Well that's a surprise then

Well anytime I call them and then get lucky by being put through to someone, they dont sound very much more gay / merrier than the rest of us. Really who makes up this stuff!

Although, I once knew a homosexual Chartered Accountant who had a pet hamster and some Morrisey posters for company. He seemed gay enough. However I have not encountered many 'out' Lesbians or Bisexuals in this profession.
