Massachusetts LGBT Chamber of Commerce

The Massachusetts LGBT Chamber of Commerce is a small, lean non-profit powered by hundreds of brilliant LGBT-owned businesses and the Commonwealth’s largest, most innovative, and profitable corporations. We have one goal: cultivate inclusive relationships to drive economic impact.


The Massachusetts LGBT Chamber of Commerce was formed to serve as an innovative hub space
for the creation of connection and increased financial opportunity for LGBTQ+ business owners in
our Commonwealth. We provide education, venues for effective and fruitful networking, and
programs to raise the profile of all LGBT-owned businesses across Massachusetts. In 2020, we
recommitted ourselves to our mission of leading boldly when COVID-19 shut down nearly all of
our member businesses. We moved quickly and steadfastly to create the necessary supports for
our businesses to survive closings and reemerge stronger than ever.
