About the Tampa Bay Diversity Chamber of Commerce

The Tampa Bay Diversity Chamber of Commerce (formerly the Tampa Bay Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and the Tampa Bay Business Guild) began over 30 years ago to provide an environment for business owners and local organizations to build an alternative community based on shared goals, friendship, and trust. Our lively meetings often include music from local gay choirs, stand-up comedy, and announcements from every corner of Tampa Bay.

We serve the entirety of Tampa Bay, including Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, and as far north as Tarpon Springs.  In addition to this web site, we host various monthly activities including semi-monthly networking dinner meetings, social mixers, and an annual awards banquet–The Diamonds In Diversity.  We also have an online business directory and an annual paper directory distributed throughout the Tampa Bay area.

Join the Tampa Bay Diversity Chamber of Commerce where our diverse membership defines gay-friendly!
