Mystery Shoppers

As a former retail manager and current part-time retail employee I say this is a fabulous idea. The Welsh branch of Stonewall has spearheaded a project - Give Us the Goods - that encourages gay & lesbian shoppers to report how they are treated during their shopping/dining/hotel/health service experience.

Stonewall was urged into action after receiving calls such as these:
...a lesbian woman refused a smear test by her doctor, a lesbian couple at their wits end trying to get help to stop being harassed by neighbours, and a gay male couple whose bank insisted that they undertake HIV tests before they would consider offering them life assurance cover.

Many, many companies rely on "mystery shoppers" to rate their employees. Many of these same companies have policies protecting their gay & lesbian employees. The results would be interesting.
