Lesbian and Bisexual-Owned Businesses You Should Support During our 2015 LezBiBuy

on

lez-bi-buy_2015

Last December we launched the first ever LezBiBuy, a day that encourages LGBT women to support their community by becoming patrons of lesbian and bi-owned businesses in a city near them. We were so thrilled by the participation around the nation last year, and hope to continue fostering that goodwill in 2015. On Saturday, December 5th, we’re asking that you visit your local lesbian/bi-owned business and spend a few bucks, whether it’s a gift for someone else or yourself.

We picked December simply because we know it’s the time of year when people are already planning to spend, and so we’re hoping that our community can be mindful that our own businesses are in desperate need of help. We have been losing women’s spaces at a rapid pace, and the only way to ensure these safe spaces will continue to thrive is to make sure we’re aware of them and by giving them our own hard-earned dollars.

This year we extended LezBiBuy to include online businesses as well (you can see them listed at the bottom), so if there’s nothing near you, you can still participate. Which leads us to the sharing of the experience via social media. On the day of, we’d love for you to share where and how you spent at a lesbian/bi business by using Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #LezBiBuy. That kind of public love helps to shout out the good we’re doing and give even more visibility to the spots you are supporting. It’s beneficial on all accounts.

So check out the list below and make a plan for December 5th! If you’re a business who wants to get listed or offer any kind of deal to LezBiBuy shoppers, let us know!
