This event is open to all LGBT business owners and professionals interested in being apart of nglccNY's Inaugural Long Island Connections.
The number of LGBT-owned businesses on Long Island is rapidly expanding every day, but the region has been lacking a central business voice focused on strengthening economic opportunities in the community. That’s one of many reasons why nglccNY is extremely excited to organize our first-ever Long Island event, jumpstarting our Long Island connections!
This nglccNY Long Island Members’ Mixer is an opportunity for LGBT business owners to network, share ideas, have fun and grow their businesses. We’re thrilled to begin a robust presence on Long Island and look forward to connecting with and showing our support for dedicated LGBT business owners who are bolstering the economy on the Island.
