“The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce reports that only 370,000 lesbian-owned businesses are in the US.”  This represents about 1.2% of the total business population, which is a decrease from the estimated lesbian population of 3-5%.  "A new website hopes to change that when it launches" the Lesbian Business Community (LBC) this Pride, aimed at identifying and connecting lesbian owned businesses with the corporate and small business community at large.
