Connecting Albuquerque Businesses with the Resources They Need to Succeed

Albuquerque LGBTQ Chamber of Commerce

The ABQ LGBTQ Chamber is dedicated to promoting LGBTQ business in Albuquerque & NM.


The Albuquerque LGBTQ Chamber of Commerce is here to help the LGBTQ and allies community succeed in business, whether through networking, workshops such as financial advice and business start-up or cooperating with other organizations such as the Albuquerque Global Chamber of Commerce. We welcome all New Mexico businesses to join us in creating the necessary foundation for a prosperous and economically stonger New Mexico. We believe all groups in Albuquerque deserve to be treated with respect, dignity and fairness; and fostering a positive business environment. We encourage entrepreneurship and innovation as well as the creative arts among our members. We provide resources to other organizations such as many of the coding organizations and organizations that help with start-ups and financing. Finally, we reach out to companies that are leaving or considering leaving "religious freedom" states which allow discrimination against LGBTQ people, to bring them and their companies to Albuquerque and New Mexico.
