For the past few years, we’ve hosted a Pride Bazaar at Yelp HQ and invited local LGBTQ+ owned businesses to showcase and sell their specialities. Our San Francisco employee community loved coming together for an evening of shopping, mingling and dancing with drag queens and drag kings.
This year we’re taking our Pride Bazaar not only virtual, but also nationwide! Community managers across North America created Yelp Collections featuring LGBTQ+ owned businesses and we’ve curated a list of 20 awesome out and proud businesses that ship their wares across the continent: Yelp’s Virtual Pride Bazar.
