< Previous Page

Immediately, when the email exchange was made public, Y2 Analytics officials reached out to Equality Utah to apologize for any offense and assure the organization Cowley would not be doing any other work for them.

Equality Utah Executive Director Brandie Balken said she does not remember Cowley and holds no ill will toward Y2 Analytics

Y2’s Scott Riding said Equality Utah has been "incredibly gracious." He emphasized that Cowley did work as a loaner and is not employed by the company.

Balken, meanwhile, pointed out how the email exchange shows the challenges people in the LGBT community face and that "it is horrible" that someone who wants to be involved in the community (as a delegate) would be subject to such "disdain."

She said it shows why legislation to protect the LGBT community against housing and employment discrimination is important because the attitude displayed in the email "is a reality."
