Following the Orlando tragedy, we have received an unprecedented number of requests to join The Welcoming Project and support our All Are Welcome message. We ask your patience as we work on including these new listings.
We have also received an outpouring of support from people around the world emailing to tell us they stand with us. We are so touched by these supportive messages.
In Pride, In Solidarity, In Hope, and In Love, always.

What Is The Welcoming Project?
The Welcoming Project began in 2011 to encourage local businesses, health care/service providers, organizations, and congregations in Norman, OK, to display welcoming signs for the purpose of making LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) individuals and allies feel welcomed as patrons. The Welcoming Project is available to communities throughout the United States. Please contact us for more information about including your community.
The Goal of the Welcoming ProjectTo increase the visibility of places that are welcoming of LGBTQ individuals
and their allies through providing welcoming signs
for places to display indicating
"ALL ARE WELCOME."
