Effort Aims to Highlight the Need to Support Local LGBT-Owned Small Businesses All Year Long

The Massachusetts LGBT Chamber of Commerce has released its annual holiday shopping catalog, highlighting diverse businesses from across the Commonwealth, each maintaining the fiery independence that LGBTQ+ small businesses are known for. Featuring businesses selling both products and services, the guide provides five highly organized categories to shop from, each highlighting some of the many unique LGBTQ+ businesses that make Massachusetts their home.

"This catalog is not just a showcase of delightful gifts and cherished services, it's a testament to the importance of economic justice," said Grace Moreno, Executive Director of the Massachusetts LGBT Chamber of Commerce. "By supporting LGBTQ+ businesses, consumers are not only finding one-of-a-kind treasures but also promoting a more inclusive and equitable economic landscape. These businesses, often founded in the face of adversity, are at the forefront of fostering diversity, creating opportunities, and driving change. Each purchase you make from our LGBTQ+ business members helps propel economic justice and makes a meaningful difference in communities across Massachusetts."

In the catalog's "Tangible Treasures" section, consumers will find triumphs of the written word like All She Wrote Books, the beloved intersectional inclusive feminist and queer bookstore based in Somerville. Other businesses featured include Canal District Wines, a bottle shop and tasting room in Worcester, and Tuck Life, the outdoor lifestyle brand from Nantucket. In the Professional Services section, you'll find everything from Only In My Dreams Events, an event planning company that coordinates weddings, galas, and private events, to Hoop & Bee, the Easthampton-based quilting studio that hosts sewing classes and longarm services in an inclusive environment. With options guaranteed to delight kids, adults, and everyone in between, the queer shopping guide features fun and thoughtful businesses that provide goods and services that create lasting memories— exactly what the holidays do best.
