On behalf of the Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce we would like to wish our members and the community at large a prosperous New Year 2018 ahead. May this be a year of personal and professional growth where businesses continue to thrive in order to contribute to our economy and the progress of our city.

$8 Billion – That is the estimated LGBT purchasing power in Miami-Dade County. We encourage the LGBT community to support those businesses that invest in our community needs. It is from this support that we thrive and have a voice in the policies that shape our nation, our state, and our local communities.

As an organization that has been the voice of the LGBT businesses and its allies in South Florida for more than a decade now, we begin our networking programming this year with the “7th Annual State of Our Community" EXPOsure Networking Luncheon.
