A St. Charles Proud Partner is a business

or organization within the St. Charles County

Community that is outwardly and openly

serving the LGBTQIA+ community. The

St. Charles Proud symbol signifies that this

is a place where one can be themself

without having to question whether or not the

establishment is LGBTQIA+ friendly.
More often than most think, LGBTQIA+ persons often question when entering establishments such as restaurants and hotels, searching for services like contractors and real estate agents or organizations such as churches, and even medical offices, if their experience will be effected by who they are and if they will be judged or turned away. Often the LGBTQIA+ community is left standing there asking the uncomfortable question if the establishment is "friendly".

Goal of the Program
We hope that this symbol becomes a notable and recognizable indicator within the St. Charles community to LGBTQIA+ persons so they do not have to ask the question if your establishment is “gay or transgender friendly”. We want people to know that they can feel welcomed in your establishment or using your services.
