Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Nevada Making a Comeback

LAS VEGAS - The Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Nevada (GLCCNV) has announced Tim Haughinberry as the organization’s new president, beginning a three-year term effective immediately.


“I am honored to take this prestigious position for the GLCCNV to reintroduce Nevada’s advocacy for the prosperity, equality and inclusivity of our state’s LGBTQ community,” Haughinberry said. Through the work of a new leadership team, including Haughinberry at the helm, the GLCCNV will aim to create new opportunities for diversity within the Las Vegas business community.

The National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) was founded in 2002 with the mission to support LGBTQ business owners through encouraging federal, state and local implementation of pro-business LGBTQ-inclusive policies. In 2013, the Nevada chapter was created as the local affiliate and hosted the National Business and Leadership Conference in 2014.

The GLCCNV is the only local governing body that can certify a company as an LGBTQ Business Enterprise, which makes it possible for businesses with gay ownership to meet the diversity requirements for companies like Caesars Entertainment, Cox, McCarran International Airport, MGM Resorts International, Wells Fargo and more.

“The chamber creates a platform to connect corporate partners with LGBTQ suppliers, which will in turn help grow their business,” said Tricia Costello, vice president of the GLCCNV. “We look forward to the growth of LGBTQ businesses in Nevada and renewing this organization, which is a pillar of our diverse community.”

As a gay business owner, Haughinberry has been a bold voice for the LGBTQ community through Back Bar USA, a beverage marketing and consulting firm working with world-renowned hospitality and beverage brands. Haughinberry is an active member of the Human Rights Campaign and previously served on the Board of Directors of Aid for AIDS of Nevada (AFAN). Haughinberry and Back Bar USA regularly support community initiatives including the AIDS Walk Las Vegas and Paint the Town.

I don’t know what it is with men’s jeans that make it so difficult to find the right pair. It takes time to go through all these denim brands and try styles like straight-legged, boot-cut, and then the disco favorite, flared jeans. Thanks to popular metal bands back in the day, acid-washed and stone-washed jeans were a thing–pair those with a biker jacket and some big hair, and you were set.

I think we’ve all been there back in the day when we smoked our first joint, and then some, (sorry mom)–hacking, coughing, and choking on the herbaceous weed.

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
