“Philadelphia Business Journal” Names Region’s 25 Top LGBT-Owned Companies

philadelphia business journal top lgbt owned companiesTomorrow, the Philadelphia Business Journal (PBJ) will debut its list of 2014’s 25 top LGBT-owned companies at a cocktail reception at Cuba Libre. The honorees include a variety of businesses — from Midtown Village natural beauty nook duross & langel to the Giampolo Law Group. PJB Editor-in-Chief Crag Ey says this is the second year they’ve released this LGBT-specific list, and the objective is to “show the largest businesses in a certain category.” This year’s winners were chosen based on objective criteria obtained from a questionnaire sent out to employees. “We also ask a few bonus questions,” he says, “Like have you ever been discriminated against, or whether or not its easier to get a bank loan than it was 20 years ago.”

I’ve got the complete list below of honorees below, broken up into categories so you can easily reference it next time you’re in the market for, say, a gay-owned realty group or catering company. It goes without saying that these are the first companies to dole out your dollars to.

The cocktail reception takes place tomorrow, Dec. 3, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Cuba Libre in Old City. To reserve a $52 ticket, go here.
