"NGLCC is proud to welcome Frontiers Media as a certified LGBT Business Enterprise (LGBTBE). Frontiers Media leads the way in trends, and we are excited they are now certified," said Chance Mitchell, CEO and co-founder of NGLCC.

Frontiers Media President and CEO Michael Turner and the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce announced that Frontiers Media has been officially certified as an LGBT Business Enterprise. The certification under the NGLCC’s Supplier Diversity Initiative designates that the company is majority owned and operated by LGBT individuals.

“The benefits are clear,” said Turner. "We are proud to be certified by the NGLCC, and we are eager to start working closely with NGLCC's corporate Supplier Diversity Partners. Our certification not only opens doors—it opens doors with companies committed to using LGBT business suppliers.”

Frontiers Media has served the LGBT community for nearly 35 years, beginning as a pioneering Southern California magazine in the 1980s and now growing under new ownership to encompass digital, mobile, video, event and outdoor signage. Its award-winning editors are among the most respected in gay media and its content is consumed via print throughout California and Nevada and digitally around the globe at FrontiersMedia.com. “NGLCC is proud to welcome Frontiers Media as a certified LGBT Business Enterprise (LGBTBE). Frontiers Media leads the way in trends, and we are excited they are now certified,” said Chance Mitchell, CEO and co-founder of NGLCC.

The NGLCC Supplier Diversity Initiative began in 2004 in response to Corporate America's growing desire to engage more deeply with the LGBT business community. Today, the NGLCC has over 140 corporate partners who recognize the LGBTBE designation when making procurement decisions and ensuring diversity in their supply chains. Modeled after programs to create opportunities for female and minority-owned businesses, the NGLCC Supplier Diversity Initiative also offers LGBT-owned Business Enterprises tools to connect with America's top corporations and each other.
