Druid City Pride is always looking for new ways to give back to our community. Our Constitution speaks to our work identifying and supporting businesses that serve as ally organizations to the LGBTQ+ community, thus we are continuing into our second year with our Ally Business Circle.

 

The goal of our Ally Business Circle is to allow local businesses the opportunity to openly state their support of the LGBTQ+ community in West Alabama and to in turn drive local community members to your establishment. 

 

Contact us today for information about how your business can become a part of the

Ally Business Circle.
