New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation (NOTMC), in collaboration with the Gulf South LGBT chamber, have introduced the first ever guide to LGBTQ-owned businesses. This guide will serve as a valuable resource to locals and visitors alike, further establishing New Orleans as the World's second "Most Welcoming City" for LGBTQ travelers (GayCities 2017 and 2018). This business guide is the second that the tourism industry has supported. NOTMC also partnered with McKenna Publishing last year and earlier to produce a guide to African American owned restaurants, shops, and other tourism-related businesses in the city. The guide is available online at and locally at many hotels and restaurants including Arrow Cafe, Mona Lisa, and Nesbit's Markets.
