What we're about

Where the LGBTQA Professional Community Connects!

This group starts in 2008, pre meetup days. Don't be fooled by a few responses on meetup as to who is going to an event. We average 40 people to every event. 20-30 is considered a low turn out. 30-50 normal and 50-70 high turnout. We are a welcoming group.

Mission & Purpose Statement The Network is a non-profit corporation as defined by applicable North Carolina law and is not organized for the private gain of any person.

The specific goals of the Network are: To establish and nurture a network of business and professional resources; To encourage fellowship and support among businesses; professionals, and charitable pursuits; To provide and promote positive role models in the Gay, Lesbian, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Ally communities; To oppose prejudice in society at large and within the homosexual community on the basis of sexual orientation, gender, race, age, national origin, religion, physical or mental impairment, or political affiliation; To oppose the exploitation of anyone because of age, gender, or lack of power; and To foster communication, tolerance, and mutual support among gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, transgender people and allies.

Providing 2 monthly events for LGBTQA professionals to network and learn more about our community twice a month through the hosting of dinner meeting (2nd Wednesday of each month) and the sponsorship of a more casual "4th Wednesday" social at an LGBTQA friendly location.
