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!
