Welcome to the HOME of the
Knoxville LGBTQ Friendly
+ Resources & Support Groups
Message from this websites creator: Knoxville TN may seem like a small town to some and a large city to others. What it is to me is a community that wants to grow to be accepting and supportive of the LGBTQ Community. Knoxville LGBTQ Non profits and Resources have grown significantly in the last 3 yrs. Also in that time, more businesses have stepped forward to show their support. Shop where you feel comfortable, find the information you need, when you need it, without membership fees or any gate keeping. I give you my best effort at building a website with all that you need to lead a happy life. ~Beau Knowles

What does LGBTQ Mean?
Please see the Human Right's Campaign (HRC) Glossary of Terms HERE which I found to be the most accurate for orientations and gender identity. The website I have developed is for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer individuals to find LGBTQ FRIENDLY Businesses and Resources in our area, but it is also an opportunity to ENLIGHTEN those that have no opinion to be ACCEPTING and those that do have a negative opinion, maybe to CHANGE IT. All I know is that being the "change you want to see in the world" is real and "leading by example" is important. Take care Everyone. ~Beau
