ARTOPIA IV BENEFICIARIES
Artopia was established to celebrate and support arts and culture in South Florida through this annual GLBX event. Each year, the GLBX selects exclusive beneficiaries to support and promote through this annual gala.
The GLBX is a council of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce and Broward County’s premiere gay-friendly networking organization, maximizing our member’s business profitability.
The Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce is the first Chamber in the state of Florida and one of the first in the nation to recognize the LGBT community as a major component of their membership. The contributions of the gay and lesbian business community within our city and surrounding area are a major driver to our local economy. The primary focus of the Chamber is to drive economic growth for the Greater Fort Lauderdale community. It was recognized that the gay and lesbian community plays a major role in our local economy and needed to be included in a manner that helps to unite and connect all local businesses, giving an inclusive voice to continue to attract new gay and lesbian owned businesses.
GLBX originated as the Gay and Lesbian Business eXchange in 2008 and formally became an official council of the Chamber in late 2010, shortly before its two year anniversary. Growth of members quickly expanded to 150 businesses in less than two years which was a major milestone on the road to success for the GLBX Council. We encourage all gay and lesbian owned businesses as well as their allies in Greater Fort Lauderdale to attend any of our events and consider joining the chamber and actively participating with GLBX.
