BEQ Today

Pride Celebrations Around the Country

By  | 

By BEQ Editorial Team

This Pride season we are embarking on an ambitious goal to virtually meet as many LGBTQ+/SGL business owners as humanly possible.  Here’s your chance to highlight the LGBTQ businesses in your community.

BEQ Pride is looking for BIG personalities, and social butterflies willing to take on this challenge. We need you!

Small businesses are the heart and soul of our economy, the backbone of our communities and  America’s largest employer. We want to celebrate all that they’ve accomplished and the foundation they’ve built for the community to thrive.

With your charm, you will help us tell the stories of the people who are out and proud to be business owners. Put your city on the map (see the list below), their business in the spotlight and grow your personal brand with BEQ Pride.
