These listings grew out of a simple idea: Too often, the haters grab the headlines. Not only do they hurt the people they claim to hate, they hurt the rest of the community as well. We want to give voice to the many organizations, groups, entrepreneurs, and artists who throw out the welcome mat to all who come to western North Carolina in good will.
While these directories are focused on the LGBTQ community, they are open to all who welcome us – as customers, employees, and colleagues. In order to list here, you have to register and be logged in.
These listings are funded by donations. We encourage listers to donate something to support the listing but do not require a donation.
We don’t give preference to anyone in this listing. The point of this listing is to provide our community with as much information as possible about welcoming organizations, groups, and services.
While we don’t give preference to listings, we do want to highlight organizations that meet criteria relevant to this directory. We give, for example, special attention to organizations that are owned by or substantial employers of the LGBTQ community. But, to be fair to all, we invite listers to include their own merit badges.
