AfterEllen Meet-Ups this Saturday for the LezBiBuy


This Saturday, December 6 is our first ever LezBiBuy, a day where we are encouraging all queer women to support their local lez/bi-owned establishments. We’ve been making a list of the places we know or hear about, and are constantly adding more as we find out about them. We are talking about anything from a pet shop to a restaurant to a boutique, and our AfterEllen staff will be showing up as well! 

Come meet us out if you live in these cities! If you aren’t, we still want you to participate. Visit your locally owned lez/bi brick and mortar and share a photo of your purchase with us on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. We’ll be using the hashtag #LezBiBuy. We don’t care if you are buying something worth 50 cents or 500 dollarsit’s all about supporting ourselves and our community spaces this holiday season. We hope you will participate!
