b'A MESSAGE FROM OUR CEOWelcome to our 39 thLGBTQ+ Business Directory!San Diego Equality Business Association is proud to offer this complimentary resource to all San Diegans who embrace diversity and inclusivity. This Directory is the result of a dedicated team that worked tirelessly earlier in 2022 to bring back our printed directory after a 4+ year absence and subsequent move to on-line. I would like to thank the following companies and individuals for their assistance and contributions: Michael Mance, Anna Lee and the team at Mance Creative for the overall design and artworkTodd Cazin of Consolidated Concepts for getting the directory printed and delivered on scheduleJay Henslee and the team at US Bank for your generous sponsorshipEric Carroll for assisting with artwork, ad design, and feedbackAll our Members and Corporate Partners that continue to support us and chose to place an advertisement within these pagesSan Diego Equality Business Association was founded in May of 1979 under the name Greater San Diego Business Association (GSDBA) and in its infancy was a secretive organization due to the anti-LGBTQ+ climate at the time. We added the gay and lesbian chamber of commerce to our logo a few decades later and ultimately changed our name to San Diego Equality Business Association in May of 2018 to better reflect who we are and our values. We have choices on who we decide to patronize and support. The businesses within these pages are majority LGBTQ+ owned and operated or have a public commitment of support for our Community and our values. By choosing to do business with our Members you are making a statement that you support San Diegos LGBTQ+ Business Community.Back in February of 2022, I received a call from an individual that had a copy of our 2014 directory and wanted to let us know the choice to use a contractor that was LGBTQ+ owned was very important to him. He chose the contractor for work on his home directly due to our printed directory. The fact that business is still being booked 8 years after printing is a testament to the longevity of this printed resource.
