Baton Rouge Pride, which offers resources, education and cultural events for the local LGBTQ+ community, will host a “Business After Hours” business networking event Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 6 p.m. at Mestizo’s Mexican Cuisine, located at 2323 S. Acadian Thruway.
Growing its directory is one goal the company hopes to achieve through the event, according to Baton Rouge Pride Chair Christopher Bradford.
“The goal is to help us draw attention to the businesses in the area which support equality in our community,” Bradford said. “All businesses are vetted by the Baton Rouge Pride Board to ensure they meet standards and ensure they are truly LGBTQ+ owned or allies. The more resources the vibrant LGBTQ+ Community of Greater Baton Rouge has the better.”
