Welcome to Localgaybusiness.com! It is with great joy and excitement that I am able to announce that we are live and streaming all over the world once again! I founded this company 12 years ago. We have been quite busy over the years. We went from an international directory to a national directory while rebuilding because I want to make sure you are getting enough attention for your business. Perhaps later down the path we will look at an international site. We are exhausted and grateful to be going live now in June 2020.
Many new options on this site include the National and Regional Media pages. Click on the page and fifteen of the top LGBT Media Sites in America are at your fingertips! You can check out the slant of any news story in the country and more! You can observe how one regional news area is different than the other. You will be able to get an educated view with a few clicks of your mouse. We have been the only website that has offered this to you in all twelve years. Many folks have a few sites but, none have our style of communication!
We are owned by Janice Mann Worldwide, Incorporated. I have been an advocate for the LGBT community since I came out in 1976. I founded the first LGBT State Conference in the great State of West Virginia in 1986 at West Virginia University. I have been on numerous LGBT Boards for LGBT rights in many states. I have worked with the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. This business has been a Certified Member of the Chamber for years. I was a member of the Florida Gay Task Force back in the 1980’s. Along my path, I have created and published over twelve books. They are now translated into Spanish, French and English and are available for sale in twelve countries. They are available at www.JaniceMann.com and at www.amazon.com. You can order them on Kindle as well.
This site is here to help create unity in our community by networking with each other! There are thousands of listings being inputted each week. Anyone with an open heart and an open mind can advertise here. Allies and friends are most welcome to participate with us! There is a process to purchase advertising which will be easy to read about under the Link “Buy Your AD Here”.
Check out our VIP Program where I invite you to be part of giving to others who are needy. We are in the process of creating a non profit 501C business to create a path to tax free giving. We all know someone who needs help. Often folks think about others who may not have it well at the Holidays. Believe me when I tell you all year round we have folks who are in need. So give a little each month or make a once a year donation to our Giving Program. As soon as the paperwork is handled we will announce it here that the 501C3 is open. In the meantime, give because you can. It is great karma.
Finally, support our advertisers! They are here because they want your business! Advertising is an investment in business. We want our advertisers to get additional business because they are loving us and what we are all about. What is that exactly? Loving one another. Being peaceful. Being kind and compassionate. Being FABULOUS! Educating others that their fear is holding them back from a fantastic life! Teaching others not to judge! That’s is a big challenge right there for us all. Do your part! Raise your consciousness! Be Spiritual not religious! Support one another! Times are a bit chaotic. We are better when we work together for justice for all!
I look forward to hearing from you! Editor@localgaybusiness.com Please tell your business friends that they are missing out by not participating with us! We are going to have so much fun!
