Thoughts from the past (2)
Generally speaking the LGBT community used to be called DINK (dual income no kids). It is not true anymore as there are many couples who have adopted or surrogated children.
The aspect you are talking is obvious: if someone at work has to hide his/her sexuality, this will affect the productivity of the organisation.
To promote a gay friendly image is somehow/sometimes ironic. You either accept or tolerate. Some companies promote and even embrace this image such as PwC and other companies of great impact in the civil society.
Now if you promote yourself as a gay friendly company in a majority islamic community, say in Birmingham's suburb, this will not improve their bottom line...
At the moment the religion/lgbt aspect is pandemic and some companies will have to see what link they want or not.
Generally speaking this should improve your productivity.
