Who We are
Founded in 1991, Lambda is the Chamber of Commerce for the LGBT community in Las Vegas and Southern Nevada. Lambda began as a networking club and morphed into a full-fledged Chamber of Commerce shortly thereafter.
Our members include LGBT-owner or operated businesses, LGBT-friendly or supportive businesses, along with political, charitable or social organizations or individuals who follow our Code of Conduct.
Besides being good people, Lambda is a great business networking opportunity. As a group, Lambda does important community work, both with member volunteers’ time and financial support to other community organizations.
Check out the great 2011 Review-Journal article about Lambda and its continued growth. A few things have changed since the article, including our address, phone number and fees.
Lambda Business Association’s premier event is a lunch which is always held the second Wednesday of every month. The lunch is open to the public and hosted at the LGBT Center at 401 S. Maryland Parkway, and begins at 11:30 a.m. Lunch is currently $18 per person, no RSVP necessary.
Membership is open to any business, person, organization or politician, subject to Board of Directors’ approval, based on our Code of Ethics.
Since 1996, Lambda has used various tag lines including "The Gay Chamber of Commerce", "The Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce", and is currently known as "The LGBT Chamber of Commerce".

Code Of EthicsInclusion, not exclusion.
While Lambda is the LGBT Chamber of Commerce for Southern Nevada, we’re proud to claim many non-LGBT members as our allies. We’re in this for business, for equality, and even socialization. We don’t discriminate, even against folks "unfortunate enough" to not be LGBT.
