The Yelp Elite Squad’s Favorite LGBTQ-Owned Businesses According to Yelp Methodology:

This is a list of the Yelp Elite Squad’s favorite LGBTQ-owned businesses in the US, not including Alaska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. All businesses have self-identified as LGBTQ-owned by using the LGBTQ-owned attribute on their Yelp business page. To build this list, we looked at the number of five star reviews each business had that were written by members of the Yelp Elite Squad. In this instance, the criteria to count as Yelp Elite users were users who have been Elite at least once between 2005 and 2022. All businesses were marked open on Yelp as of June 1, 2022. When available, all businesses on this list have a passing health score as of June 1, 2022.
