Dear <<First Name>>,

Did everyone blink and find that October was over?!! November is the time of year when people think of planning to get together with friends and loved ones for the holidays. Many in the LGBTQ community find this time of year to be more painful than anything due to their families non-acceptance of their identity or non-acceptance of their significant other. If you feel so inspired, invite someone to one of your family gatherings so that individual can feel that "family" comes in all shapes and sizes!

This week a Federal Judge has blocked the Transgender Ban in the Military. This a victory for our Transgender family! 

Our upcoming Holiday Party is fast approaching! It will be here in ONE month! Your holiday planning committee has been working extremely hard to put together a great event. You will receive an invite in the mail soon with more details. Save December 1st on your calendar!  Thank you to the sponsors who are supporting the party!!

Every month I want to highlight a category within our membership directory to help us all remember our member businesses when we need services. Since we are coming up on the holidays, I thought it would be a good time to highlight our Lodging and Travel members-- it's that time of year to travel and visit different places around the world!

In special Lodging & Travel news: Prism Hotels & Resorts has offered a special discount to the Chamber members only AND the Chamber will receive 5% of the room revenues in return! A win-win for all! Thank you Prism Hotels!

Home for the Holidays! This November and December, make Radisson Suites Tucson and/or the Best Western Plus Tucson Int’l Airport Hotel & Suites your home in the city and enjoy 20% off our room rate.  Visit friends and family or simply enjoy all the "pride" that Tucson has to offer.  This promotion is for Tucson GLBT Chamber members only, with 5% of total room revenues given back to the chamber as a thank you for your partnership. 
Call the Radisson at 520.721.7100 or the Best Western at 520.746.3932 and ask for the GLBT Home for the Holidays rate!

See you at our Quarterly special event hosted by the Alliance Fund and Shelly Fishman/Robert Kafes (His 75th Birthday party!) on November 10th. Please RSVP for this event on our website

Our Out and About this month is being hosted by National Bank of Arizona on Nov 2! Please RSVP on our website!
