Equality Florida and Hispanic Foundation Create Open Doors Directory

Open Doors

Equality Florida and the Hispanic Federation have partnered together to create a new LGBTQ+ resource called Open Doors, according to a press release from Equality Florida.

Open Doors, or Puertas Abiertas, is a fully bilingual directory of LGBTQ-friendly businesses and organizations.

This directory allows people to refer businesses they believe are LGBTQ-friendly, or for businesses to sign themselves up.

After a business is recommended, Open Doors’ staff follows up to ensure their suitability for the directory.

The directory is mobile-friendly, and includes map and search features. Over 1,000 Florida businesses are listed in the directory so far.

In their press release, Equality Florida stated that this directory “is a dramatic evolution to our previous directory we launched three years ago, and continues our efforts to ensure that people of color, LGBTQ+ people, and marginalized communities feel welcome and protected in their daily lives.”
