About Us

The mission of the Tucson Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Chamber of Commerce (TLGBTCC) is to promote the success and growth of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and allied business community in Southern Arizona through education, networking, and advocacy.
We envision economic and social equity for all Southern Arizonans.

The TLGBTCC was started in the early 1990s as the Community Business Association, a private group to provide a place for LGBT business people to gather and find mutual support through networking. Over the years we have grown our mission to include advocacy, education and increased visibility for LGBT business issues within the larger community. In order to reflect this expansion of its mission, the organization changed our name to the Tucson GLBT Chamber of Commerce in 2005 and opened our doors to straight allies.

In 2019, we launched the Tucson LGBT Chamber of Commerce Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to supporting the educational goals of LGBT people through scholarships, mentorships, and programming. At the same time, we changed our name to the Tucson LGBT Chamber of Commerce.
