The Gay Business Association (GBA)

The LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce in UK, Channel Island and the Isle of Man since 1983.

 

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 are run by a voluntary committee elected from GBA members.

We hold monthly networking meetings, and arrange training and support in areas of interest to LGBT professionals.
