HOW ARE BUSINESSES DETERMINED TO BE "LGBT+ FRIENDLY"?
Every business listed in the directory has completed the Business Survey. Businesses are considered "LGBT+ friendly" if they respond affirmatively to more than one question on the survey. Additionally, many of the businesses listed in the directory have displayed their support of the LGBT+ community by supporting Polestar. Word of mouth affirmation of a business' LGBT+ friendly services/status is always welcome.
CAN I SUGGEST A BUSINESS?
Absolutely! Fill out our Suggest A Business form and tell us why you feel the business should be included. We love to hear about your good experiences in our wider community.
HOW CAN I LIST MY BUSINESS?
If you are the owner or manager of a business and would like your business to appear in our LGBT+ friendly business directory, fill out our Business Survey and tell us why you should be listed. Polestar LGBT+ Community Center reserves the right to not list your business if your responses indicate that you are not supportive of the LGBT+ community.
IF I DISAGREE WITH A LISTING/HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE WITH A LISTED BUSINESS, CAN I ASK THAT IT BE DE-LISTED?
If you had a bad experience with a business listed on our directory, email us at email@example.com and tell us about it. Polestar LGBT+ Community Center reserves the right to retain or delete the listing and may or may not de-list the business based on anecdotal evidence from members of the LGBT+ community.
IS THERE A COST TO LIST A BUSINESS?
No! We have a basic listing that includes the name of your business, address, email, phone number, social media, and website. A basic listing looks like this: Polestar LGBT+ Community Center | 7317 PO Box Traverse City, MI 49696 | Facebook | Website | Email
