Safe Spaces of Sussex

Many LGBTQ+ people experience discrimination daily, whether it be from a business, a healthcare provider, an employer...The list goes on. Here we will constantly update a list of businesses, places of worship, healthcare offices and other relevant services and locations in and around Sussex County that are LGBTQ+ affirming spaces. If you know a business that should be added to this list, please contact us.

Note that this is a list of suggestions we have received, and being left off this list does not mean a business isn't safe, only that we haven't been asked to include them.
