The Massachusetts LGBT Chamber of Commerce, based in Boston. will be become an entrepreneur resource for all gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer business owners in the state. The goal of the new LGBT Chamber of Commerce is ‘to create an inclusive economic growth environment by promoting opportunities among LGBT-owned and allied businesses, corporations and professionals. The Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker and regional mayor Alex Morse

attended the opening along with local LGBT community leaders, community allies and of course business owners interested in learning more and looking to get involved. Officially it opened its doors on September 24th with a kick-off party hosted The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. It is located at 50 Milk Street, 15th Floor, Boston, MA 02109.

Revenue Generation is Key Focus

Grace Moreno, Executive Director of the Massachusetts LGBT Chamber of Commerce, stated,”The chamber’s mandate ‘is putting more revenue in the pockets of LGBT-owned businesses.”

As an advocate and link, the Massachusetts LGBT Chamber of Commerce seeks to promote economic growth and viability for LGBT-owned and allied businesses, corporations, and professionals throughout the Commonwealth. We do this through advocacy, educational, and collaborative efforts, such as:

  • Creating sustainable economic growth and opportunities for LGBT businesses
  • Giving corporate partners and allied businesses interested in building their supplier diversity an opportunity to directly access and connect with LGBT businesses
  • Offering education and training to facilitate certification of LGBT Business Enterprises (LGBTBE)
  • Working with local and state agencies to promote supplier diversity, thus, enabling LGBT businesses to flourish

Jim Heppelmann, president and CEO of PTC Inc. a technology software firm based in Boston, said that ”Becoming a founding member of the Massachusetts LGBT Chamber was ‘an easy decision. Diversity and inclusion are essential to any organization’s creativity, growth, and success, and we recognize their role in helping to drive the innovative and nurturing spirit that makes us not only a great place to work but also a company people can feel proud of doing business with.”

Progressing Forward

LGBTI representation is currently a hot topic for the people of Massachusetts in the lead up the US midterm elections on November 6.

Among the questions on the ballots, voters will be asked whether they want to keep or repeal a law protecting transgender people in the state.

This is in reference to Senate Bill 2407 from 2016, which is designed to prohibit discrimination of people in public areas regardless of their gender identity. Groups advocating repealing the law have released transphobic political ads which are being broadcast in Massachusetts, which suggests that sexual predators will take advantage of laws which are designed to protect the trans community.
