BLOOMINGTON-NORMAL AREA LGBTQIA+
BUSINESS AND RESOURCE DIRECTORY

(Click here for a PDF copy of the Resource directory)

Dear Members of Our Community:

Since we published the inaugural edition of this directory in June 2017, we have received many, many requests from local businesses and resources asking to be a part of future editions of the directory.  We are proud to present to you the electronic edition of the Bloomington-Normal Area LGBTQIA+ Business and Resource Directory.

This listing contains members who have pledged to provide an inclusive, welcoming environment and to serve our community fairly and equitably.  Their commitment is consistent with our mission: to make the Bloomington/Normal area a safer, more progressive place where we can live openly and authentically as ourselves.  Each of these members has agreed to display a special static cling rainbow decal at their entrance and/or on their online web site.  This identifier will help customers and clients easily identify our supportive businesses, organizations, and resources.

Please consider patronizing the businesses and supporting the organizations and resources who support us!
