A quick word from the Publisher…
I am proud to be a part of a collective unique minority. When you grow up in a small town (where everyone knows your name) as I did you automatically assume there is no one else like you in the World.
My passion is to be someone who gets results for people; whether it has been through coaching, playing sports, personal training, helping an independent retailer grow their business and get the results they are looking for. My career in that light began when I was 9 years old, selling Christmas cards door to door. I was a success. My expertise is working to assure that small to medium size businesses get the results they are looking for. This has been my passion for the past 20 years. I always believed that the best way to grow a business is to get your name out there and the best way to do that is through advertising. My 20 years of experience in the Yellow Page & Magazine advertising industry has given me the vehicle to exercise my passion. The “right” ad can put a business over the top.
Growing up in a town of 2,000 and being gay was not an easy thing to do, but it made me realize how important a Directory like mine is. Now, I’m here for you!
It is my hope that this directory will give us a road map to learning, showing we can get involved in “Our Community” and especially become a voice on issues that most affect us. We can volunteer. We can call our Congress representing our districts and give them our opinions. We can call our Senators, Governor’s office and even our President. We can use our buying power to shop with businesses that support us and Our Rights to be Equal.
Knowledge is Power and Exposure Quells Myths. “We are “Out of the Closet!” This directory in a small but powerful way shows who we are without reservation or restriction. We are Business Professionals, Doctors, Lawyers, Teachers, Parents. We are as concerned about our Neighborhoods, Schools, The Economy, Peace in our time, The Environment, Education, Health Care, Jobs, and Safety as every other citizen in this country.
Gay and Lesbian Pages is a southern California gay friendly business directory / gay yellow pages serving millions of people who are looking for gay 411, gay yellow pages, gay online directory and gay yellow book. The site provides a comprehensive directory of business listings that are gay friendly such as gay clubs, gay bars, gay hair salons, gay healthcare, gay cruises, and gay travel. Gay and Lesbian pages is also an excellent outlet for advertisers who are looking for gay friendly sites or who are looking to market their products to the gay community.
These days it seems everything has totally evolved, from our fashion sense, to technology, to lifestyle, even with our perception of our environment and people. Gays and lesbians, particularly, couldn’t be open about our personalities and our relationships but look at us now! With the open-mindedness of the generation of today, we are now comfortable being ourselves and are being accepted members of society and some of us are even recognized for our exemplary contributions in business, fashion, creative jobs, the film industry and a lot more.
One place where gays and lesbians seem to be most comfortable will be evident where there is a proliferation of gay business directory featuring businesses owned by LGBT’s or businesses catered to them or the current trend, which is, businesses promoted as gay-friendly. These three categories are enough bases for publishers to come up with the listings knowing this is the answer to a need of our growing community.
Browsing through gay yellow pages, one will see that spa and massage services, restaurants, bars, boutiques, and a big number of other businesses promote an atmosphere that not only caters to local residents but even gay, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people without any discrimination whatsoever. We are treated just like any other person in the community at large. And what’s even better is that we are respected as a big and spending market which can help definitely ring up cash registers.
A gay business directory is also not complete if it doesn’t feature listings of businesses and services that cater to our needs. It is widely known that gay and lesbian people are thoroughly outgoing and the nightlife is one of our great passions. An extensive list of bars and clubs is easy to find when we want some fun and entertainment. The same goes true for travel services that suit the particular lifestyle of the LGBT community especially those who prefer to travel with our partners or whoever we are in a relationship with at the moment. Even if the world is already more welcoming to us, there is still some places who are quite conservative to these issues such as vacation places, Attorneys, Plumbers, House Keepers, accountants etc. Travel services provide a good deal of information on which places are best to visit, enjoy and relax.
Gay directories are also one big factor to maintain contacts and networks in a community or state especially if you are starting up a business or looking for people to hang out with. Without having to leave the comforts of home, you can look up what you need since it’s all categorized and easy to use and easy to read.
Easy to use, Easy to read Less effort, more convenience, great results – with everything you need featured in it.
