Quenton Chissem

I’ve always believed that the biggest hindrance for the LGBT community was disunity. Since coming to Charlotte I’ve seen the Business Guild, now the Charlotte LGBT Chamber of Commerce, do some much to unify the community. I want, and need to be apart of that. Changing the world around us to ensure growth, equality, and a future. That’s huge! If I can help create a city where LGBT rights, businesses, and youth prosper…the in all for it.
