(Your Equality Speaks!)

Y.E.S. is an acronym for Your Equality Speaks and is a program that provides opportunities for businesses and organizations in Asheville & Western North Carolina to proudly proclaim they are welcoming to the LGBTQ community!

As in previous years, Y.E.S. membership includes:

  • NEW! Community Partner Seminars
  • Designation & Listing on our annual map of Asheville & WNC as an LGBTQ Welcoming Business or Organization
  • Option to purchase an Advertisement at a discounted rate on the Y.E.S. printed map
  • Business listing and web link on the Blue Ridge Pride website
  • Shout outs on our social media sites as a participating business
  • Free printed copies of the 2013-2014 map
  • A window cling for your business or organization to display as a notification to LGBTQ individuals you are welcoming.
  • Y.E.S. maps will be distributed at Asheville Visitor’s Center, Asheville Downtown Association, and member businesses and organizations throughout Western North Carolina.

 This year, we expanded our map in 2 new and exciting ways:

  • We included businesses and organizations outside of the Asheville area.
  • We added designations for the following categories:
    • LGBTQ-Owned
    • Gender Neutral Bathrooms Available
    • Y.E.S. SafeZones (designated welcoming and safe meeting areas for LGBTQ groups and organizations)

Join the following Asheville & Western North Carolina businesses and organizations that proudly support the LGBTQ community! Contact Tim at or (828) 338-8277 for questions about our Y.E.S. program.
