AUSTIN, Texas (September 4, 2014) — The Austin Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (AGLCC) will hold a Rainbow Ribbon Cutting on Tuesday, Sept. 9, for Dr. Pea’s Active Health Center.

The Rainbow Ribbon Cutting will start at 11 a.m. at Departure Lounge, 311 W. Fifth St., in downtown Austin.

"The AGLCC is proud to be part of growth of Dr. Pea’s Active Health Center. Dr. Pea’s is a great example of an LGBT-supportive business that is showing its commitment to the LGBT community and is demonstrating that it welcomes a rainbow of clients," said Amy Cook, AGLCC membership chair.

New business members of the AGLCC are eligible to have a Rainbow Ribbon Cutting ceremony. These events are attended by chamber Ambassadors, and are promoted on the chamber website, at chamber events and through the chamber’s quarterly magazine, The Agenda.
