There are a whole lot of LGTBQ-unfriendly joints in the world (i.e. Urban Outfitters, Chick-fil-A), wouldn’t it be really great if someone created a Yelp-like site (to rate, map, and sort places) that was designated for gay restaurants, bars, shopping and more? Dreams come true, guys, because Rainbow Chronicle is exactly that – a user-generated review site that rates LGBT friendliness.
Rainbow Chronicle isn’ t just about your night out, but is a support/guide for every aspect of your life. The “Rainbow Map” rates local churches, organizations and events based on how they treat the gay community. Basically, meet your new (and super smart) best friend in town.
Here’s their mission:
Rainbow Chronicle seeks to call to attention the actions and practices of businesses, organizations and community leaders through user-generated reviews in an effort to identify those that are LGBT-friendly and those that are not. No longer can individuals, corporations and small businesses act in a bigoted manner with impunity. For the first time, there is a single resource for unequivocally determining who is and who is not trusted and supportive of the LGBT and allied communities.
But, in case you aren’t in the mood to read (hey, you got places to be — we get it!), check out the instructional/informational quick video explained by the site creator Travis Lowry. Side note: Where we all meeting tonight? Follow The Everyday Gay on Facebook and Twitter!
