Irving-based Exxon Mobil Corp. has prohibited Pride flags to be flown outside any of its offices during Pride month. The company announced it was banning all “external position flags” that also includes Black Lives Matter banners.

The company claimed it needed to maintain “neutrality.” Exxon Mobil has an employee resource group call Pride that has 3,000 members out of a total workforce of 64,000.

That’s 4.5 percent of its workforce. The group is refusing to represent the company at upcoming Pride events. For years, Exxon Mobil received a record-setting minus-20 score on Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index.
