Industry Survey

Question: Is your business currently affiliated with any LGBTQ+ organizations? If so, which ones?

Answer: Not specifically, no

Question: Would you be interested in participating in LGBTQ+ training provided by Equality Loudoun in the future?

Answer: Yes


Question: How do you make sure you are employing a diverse group of people that are qualified for the job?

Answer: As a business owner, when I interview, I'm looking for work ethic, motivation, enthusiasm, and kindness. Gender and sexual orientation could never make an employee candidate more or less enticing to me. My rule is simply that you "have to play nice on my playground."


Question: What are you doing to make your business a safe space in the community for LGBTQ+ people?

Answer: Glass Door Salon has never had a gender-specific menu (nor an age specific menu). You won't see one price for a "man's cut" and another price for a "woman's cut." We do not have a gender specific bathroom. We naturally adjust our vocabulary when we're notified of an individual's preference. Honestly, are brains are just focused on the hair on your head and getting you to feel like yourself again!


Question: Do you provide all-gendered/non-gendered/unisex restrooms or have a trans-inclusive bathroom policy at your place of business?

Answer: Yes, that is provided.
