The Nashville LGBT Chamber is working hard for our members, the LGBT+ community, and Nashville as a whole, to be the best place to do business that’s equal and open for all. We advocate and educate on behalf of our individual, small business, corporate, and nonprofit members who share the values of promoting equality and diversity in business and society.

Join us at Top Golf on Thursday, March 19 from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. Food and beverages will be served. Come give the chamber a test drive and hit a golf ball while you connect with our network!

The Nashville LGBT Chamber released an open letter from over 150 businesses that opposed the signing of the Adoption Bill and warned lawmakers not to pass any further discriminatory legislation. Further discrimination will harm Tennessee’s ability to attract and retain talent to the state and will bring an economic punishment from boycotts and business and people not coming here. We are working hard to make sure this does not happen. Join us.
LGBT Certified Businesses
We are constantly certifying LGBT Business Entreprises. Certification is a great way to level the playing field for LGBT businesses through the procurement process. Certification is normally $400 but waived if you’re a business member of our chamber. Contact us to get certified.
