Baton Rouge Pride, now the largest LGBTQ+ organization in the Greater Baton Rouge area, is holding Business After Hours, a free and open event for LGBTQ+ Owned and Allied Businesses.
As seen on businessreport.com, this is a second meeting of an ongoing series with a goal of “expanding economic opportunities and advancements for LGBTQ+ people in Baton Rouge and this cannot be achieved without keeping Businesses and organizations in mind” says Baton Rouge Pride Board Member Robyn Vie Carpenter-Brisco. Vie Carpenter-Brisco goes on to say “our first event was at Strobes Downtown and brought a variety of businesses and organizations out, it was truly magnificent to see community support for us.”
In addition to drawing attention to businesses, Baton Rouge Pride is hoping to help grow their LGBTQ+ Business Directory through the event, which it launched earlier this year. “The goal is to help us draw attention to the businesses in the area which support equality in our community. All businesses are vetted by the Baton Rouge Pride Board to ensure they meet standards and ensure they are truly LGBTQ+ owned or allies. The more resources the vibrant LGBTQ+ Community of Greater Baton Rouge has the better.” say Baton Rouge Pride Chair, Christopher Bradford.
We ask you to join us for cocktails and conversations as we talk about building a vibrant and active LGBTQ+ and allied business community here in Baton Rouge on Thursday, October 24, 2019 at Coyote Moon Crystals and Gifts from 7:00 pm till 9:00 pm. Light refreshments to be provided.
