U.S. Supreme Court vs the Future of the LGBT Consumer
In light of the recent U.S. Supreme Court case of the Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a gay couple’s wedding reception, it becomes clearer. There’s a need for a place like the GPS Experience.
We are a LGBT base business organization leasing space to the film, television, and music industry, and providing safe welcoming spaces for the LGBT community. The GPS Experience has a place for community members to meet, dine, wed, and have private events.
Not only will we have places to socialize but in phase II of our growth, there are big plans. Those of you who get your hair done at a traditional barbershop know how rampant homophobia runs throughout the environment. Men, Lesbians, and Transgenders experience gender bias when they go to any of the traditional nail & petite salons. In phase II of our growth, there will be an upscale non-homophobia barbershop and an unbiased nail & petite salon & spa just for you!

A few people who have no problems getting dates may say to those who want to know their secret “It’s easy as pie”. Folks getting back on the LGBT dating scene may hear “It’s like riding a bicycle, you never forget”. However, baking a pie ain’t that easy for non-bakers and with age may easily come broken bones and longer healing. Plus, dating has gotten a whole lot more expensive nowadays.
According to a report by research firm IBISWorld, the dating industry is now worth about $2.2 billion, up 4.8% between 2013 and 2014, Of that, around $1.1 billion is from online dating, $576 million is from mobile apps such as Grindr and Tinder, and the rest is made up mainly of matchmakers and singles events. Nielsen market research firm states 10% of the U.S. population (Roughly 30 million) visit dating sites every month. Many people invest a lot of dollars to make a perfect match. The Grand Prize Singles Experience is a safe space where men can meet men and women can meet women. By the way, it won’t cost you a thing! Grand Prize Lookin’ for a Winner, a Dating & Relationship Guide for Gay Men of Color e-book supports you on your dating journey. Stay tuned for our launch date!
We plan to book up and coming stars like this talented young man, Mr. Jaboukie Young White.
I hope we can afford him because he's going places!
