Local Equality Patronage Guide

The Oregon Local Equality Patronage Guide lists local LGBTQ equality supporters who welcome you to their establishments and/or their services, and most offer gift certificates. As we shop this holiday season, and year round, let’s show them our appreciation of their past commitment to equality, and that we will continue to support businesses that continue to donate to LGBTQ equality causes.

If you’re a business/service that has supported LGBTQ causes and you find that you’re not on my list, then email lesliestone@ashlandhome.net with the details “why I should be in this shopping guide” and you will be included the next time this is updated.
