WHO WE ARE
Our aim is to shine a light on businesses and organizations who actively support the LGBT community. We make it easy for people to find resources and services from vendors that will welcome them openly without discrimination.
ENDORSING BUSINESSES WHO ACTIVELY SUPPORT THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
When my wife and I got married, the MARRIAGE EQUALITY ACT had not yet passed in most states. To plan a same sex wedding was extremely challenging. Many of the vendors and services we reached out to still carried judgmental attitudes towards the LGBT community. Whether it was a subtle hint, a surprised look, or outright opposition, I knew they did not support me or my family.
After I scoured the internet for weeks, I gave up in frustration. All I wanted was an easy way to find businesses that would clearly treat my lifestyle equal to any one else’s.
Thus, the LiveEqual Movement was born. LiveEqual was created to be a platform that provides vetted resources to the LGBTQ community and its allies so that you can confidently know the people you choose to work with support you.
LiveEqual vendors must have experience working with the LGBT community.
A Minimum of 3 experiences and referrals required.
HOW IT WORKS
How we choose our vendors
Every business that comes our way starts with an application process.
Each company will then go through a personal interview to ensure they meet the LiveEqual Standard.
Every approved business will be listed on our online directory.
WHAT WE EXPECT FROM EACH VENDOR
LiveEqual vendors will have knowledge and awareness of LGBT issues and terminology.
LiveEqual vendors promise to be compassionate and considerate to all humankind.
No haters allowed!
Each and every one of our partners strive for excellence in their craft in order to provide quality services and goods that are beneficial to the LiveEqual Community.
