How to be an allied business?
1. Display a Pride flag, sticker, or other equality sign where it's visible
Don't have one? Email us and we'll provide you one for free! Many of our members can attest, coming out is difficult and finding affirming and supportive businesses is a challenging yet important part of the process.
2. Be a business partner for a local LGBTQ+ organization
3. Be a vendor for a local Pride event
Good for your business and our community. You can host a booth or table at a local event or even be a venue for an LGBTQ+ event hosted by our organization? We're launching a monthly meet-up event and are looking for local businesses willing to host a Pride Night! Email us for more info.
4. Join the Equality Means Business Directory.
This directory, hosted by Equality Virginia, brings together local businesses in one place so that members of our community can easily find affirming and supportive businesses where they can feel safe and welcome. Check it out!
