From the creators of “Support LGBTQ Businesses”, Queerys is here!

Discover your world.

The LGBTQ+ directory to show that your business is a safe and inclusive location. And the LGBTQ+ directory that will make finding services and safer locations easy, everywhere.

As an LGBTQ+ friendly business, it can be difficult to let new customers know that you are an inclusive and safe space. And as an LGBTQ+ person, it can be difficult when travelling, or heading to a new place to know which businesses are friendly, and which aren’t.

Not any more!

Simply add your business to our directory so potential customers can find you on the map. And if you are an LGBTQ+ person, find the perfect place for you.

The new invaluable resource designed for you.

Our Team

Jodie Kear

She/Her

Jodie lives in Hertfordshire with her two boys, and works as an

Emergency dispatcher for the London Ambulance Service. Being an essential worker, the pandemic was hard as work was relentless, and on top of that, she was homeschooling a five year old whilst entertaining a one year old!

It is because of the Pandemic that Queerys exists.

Jodie became very aware that due to her job in the NHS, she didn’t have to worry about the financial impacts of COVID like many others did. She wanted to support small businesses, and as she is part of the LGBTQ community, it just felt right that she focused her energy on LGBTQ entrepreneurs.

She hopes by next year to have as many different industries represented on the website by LGBTQ entrepreneurs and their allies, therefore providing the community with access to multiple services and safe spaces no matter where they are in the UK.

When she isn’t saving lives or working on Queerys, Jodie enjoys kayaking, exploring new places and solving the crime documentaries on Netflix before it’s revealed. She’s also partial to a good pub lunch and of course, knows where all the LGBTQ friendly places are to get one!

Jodie Barden

She/Her

Jodie lives in Suffolk with her four children, and is the owner of Ella Bella Weddings and Events; an unconventional wedding and party planner. She specialises in kickass and celebrant lead events, with no restrictions or judgements in what anyone wants on their special day. She is also fully inclusive, and proud to be a LGBTQ+ wedding supplier.

Jodie is all about the non traditional, throwing the rule book out the window and planning weddings solely focused on what makes the couple unique.If the couple doesn’t like being the centre of attention, she gets rid of the posed photos and dance, and instead introduces other fun aspects. If the bride wants a black wedding dress, or a greek goddess themed wedding, it is all possible. Why have a wedding confined by other people when you can have the day of your dreams?

If you are planning a wedding with a difference, Ella Bella Weddings and Events is your first stop. Star Wars themed wedding anyone?

She’s passionate about LGBTQ+ people having equal opportunity to achieve the success, fulfilment, and happiness they deserve!

Her other big passion is educating and training LGBTQ+ allies to create inclusive businesses.

Sarah believes that the ONLY way we will eliminate discrimination, hate, and harm towards the LGBTQ+ community is by harnessing the power and support of our straight cisgender allies.

Sarah is deeply committed to her personal activism through visibility, representation, and holding inclusive spaces for queer folk and allies to create collective change.
