Why Join

HRBOR’s mission is to empower and support our LGBT-owned and allied member businesses and professionals. Our goal is to create an inclusive Hampton Roads community and provide you with exposure to this large, loyal, and allied LGBTQ consumer market.

We offer four core benefits:

LGBTBE CERTIFICATION
We are an affiliate to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, and we pay for our members to pursue LGBT Business Enterprise Certification. Once completed, your certification connects you with the NGLCC’s international network of affiliates.

SAFE COMMERCE PROGRAM
HRBOR members receive Safe Commerce designation that informs LGBT consumers that theirs is a welcoming place of business. By displaying our sticker, your business immediately identified as welcoming to the LGBT community.

LOCAL CONNECTIONS
Our annual LGBT Business Expo, our printed member directory, and our regular member events create valuable connections with consumers and businesses throughout Hampton Roads.

SAVINGS
You can take advantage of discounts offered by fellow HRBOR member businesses, as well as offer your own discount. Your membership also entitles you to substantial discounts on display advertising in our print directory and exhibitor fees at our annual LGBT Business Expo.
