ABOUT THIS DIRECTORY
 

This Directory provides links to LGBTQ owned and friendly business and services.  As you browse through the directory remember to support business that respect you and your family.

SHOP QUEER!

Opponents of LGBTQ equality believe they are morally superior to gay and lesbian families and our supporters.  And they have the backing of the Bush administration whose campaign was financed by large corporations like Wal-Mart (see the Boycott page for a complete list of companies who supported Bush).
Instead of spending money at these and other straight-owned enterprises, why not spend your hard-earned dollars supporting businesses that support you and your family?
Use this directory and our classifieds to purchase products or services from queer owned or queer friendly merchants.  And if you have something to sell or trade, why not list it here – it’s free! 
Together we have the power to make a difference!

Iowa In The News

Wedding-Day Wait Ends For Same-Sex Couples
Tony Leys
04/2809. More than 380 same-sex couples ushered in a new chapter of Iowa history Monday when they applied for marriage licenses under a state Supreme Court ruling that gave them marital rights equal to those of heterosexuals.
 
Roundup Of Recent Marriage Equality News In Iowa
DesMoineDem
04/2209. If you are planning a same-sex marriage in Iowa, please note that this will become possible on April 27, not April 24 as was widely reported after the Iowa Supreme Court announced its Varnum v Brien decision.
 
Falling Short of Full Constitutional Protection For Gays In Iowa
Emma Ruby-Sachs
04/04/09. In upholding gay marriage, the Iowan Court made a number of choices. Some of these were as progressive as the California Supreme Court in Re Marriage Cases and some were not.
 
Iowa Is 3rd State To Recognize Gay Marriage
TruthDig
04/04/09. Proving once again how awesome Iowa is and how the battle for civil rights continues, Iowa’s Supreme Court has ruled that its ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, making it the third state to legalize gay marriage.
 
Iowa Marriage Decision Due April 3
Paul Schndler
04/03/09. Sean Fritz and Tim McQuillan, Iowa's only legally married gay couple, scrambled last week to win that distinction. 
 
Liberty And Freedom In Iowa
Steven Reynolds
12/08/08. Iowa is the next venue for a gay marriage challenge in the courts, and that happens tomorrow before the Iowa Supremes. Seems a judge there actually declared the ban on gay marriages unconstitutional there. Once again the hopes and aspirations of gay and lesbian Americans, and their children, are on the line.
 
Iowa Court To Consider Same-Sex Marriage
Grant Schulte
12/08/08. The Iowa Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a pivotal same-sex marriage case that could echo throughout the nation and be far more difficult to challenge at the ballot box than a high-profile ruling in California.
 
Liberty And Freedom In Iowa
Steven Reynolds
12/08/08. Iowa is the next venue for a gay marriage challenge in the courts, and that happens tomorrow before the Iowa Supremes. Seems a judge there actually declared the ban on gay marriages unconstitutional there. Once again the hopes and aspirations of gay and lesbian Americans, and their children, are on the line.
 
Iowa Supreme Court Schedules Marriage Hearing
Timothy Kincaid
10/05/08. Over a year ago an Iowa judge declared the law that denies marriage to gay couples to be unconstitutional. He quickly followed this by placing a stay on the decision until it could be heard by the Supreme Court.
