17 Cleveland Businesses Proudly Owned by Members of the LGBTQ+ Community


In honor of the passing of Cuyahoga County's LGBTQ+ protection ordinance, it's high time we featured the incredible contributions made by the ingenuity and passion of members of our LGBTQ+ community. Whether it's a dance club, brunch spot or even personalized dog training, these businesses and eateries brought by our LGBTQ+ guys, gals and non-binary pals truly enhance the Cleveland experience.

Most of the businesses featured are part of Plexus, the official Chamber of Commerce for the LGBTQ+ Community and Allies.

Disclaimer: Non-Plexus member businesses featured have gone on public record with Scene as a LGBTQ+ owned business, or have provided their expressed permission to be featured in this slideshow. We're not here to out people without their consent.

If you or someone you know are a LGBTQ+ business owner and want to be featured in this list, let us know! There's always more room under the rainbow.
