About the Directory

Northwest Arkansas Equality is committed to identifying resources, organizations, and local businesses that work to support the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community. Community Connections is our living directory containing a list of our program and business partners, and sponsors, organizations, and other resources focused on providing support. These resources are vetted both in-house and by trusted organizations and partners.

Program partners and nonprofits should contact us for listing information. Businesses supporting the LGBTQ community can self-register by clicking the Create Listing button. Annual membership is $25.00, which helps support the efforts to maintain the directory and our advocacy and outreach work.
