Wells Fargo's commitment to the LGBT community dates back to 1987, when we added sexual orientation to our nondiscrimination policy. Since then, we've contributed to LGBT organizations, lent our support to anti-bullying efforts, and continued to foster a culture of equality. We understand that LGBT customers, especially couples and families, may have different banking needs than the general market, so we tailor our financial products and services to meet your needs. Visit www.wellsfargo.com/lgbt to learn more about Wells Fargo's ongoing commitment to the LGBT community.
