What is “Best of?”

When we asked for the best, we encouraged all our respondents to think about: how inclusive the business is as a whole, how welcome and safe open and out LGBTQIA+ members are when going there, how well they treat their employees, and how well they treat the community in general.

Why “Queer”?

There is frequent debate over what should be the most accepted term for gender- and sexual- minorities (now commonly referred to as “GSM”). Queer has always meant strange, different, a little odd.

It is with that spirit we invite all the unique beings in the Tri-Cities – those who feel they don’t belong, those who have had to make their own places of belonging – to celebrate those organizations, businesses, and leaders in the Tri-Cities who help make our town a a place to belong.

Local Resources

Our volunteers have worked hard to combine the local link trees and resource compilations into a one stop shop.
