Gay Business Association ***

The GBA was formed in 1983 as a trade association to fight the inequalities we faced from hostile authorities. Working with other groups we won legal equality, and today the GBA is a modern day gay chamber of commerce. By Gay we mean the LGBTQ+ community. Today, our focus is on: – providing networking opportunities to make useful business contacts, – training for LGBTQ+ professionals in legal, marketing, business development and employment issues – and we work together with Government and others to develop the gay market and encourage gay-owned start-ups. We hold monthly networking meetings and are operated by the Gay Professional Network, and arrange training and support in areas of interest to LGBT professionals.
