The built environment affects health and well-being (Dannenberg et al., 2011), but government efforts to shape places to meet the needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersectional (LGBTQI) people have been limited (Forsyth, 2001; Doan, 2001; Doan and Higgins, 2001; Gorman-Murray, 2001; Frisch, 2002). Place-based quasi-governmental entries such as Business Improvement Districts (BIDS) or Chambers of Commerce are often thought to work for the self-interest of business owners rather than for the general health and well-being of a community (Mitchell, 2008). To what degree do these organizations in LGBTQI places work toward meeting the needs of the community, and to what degree is the self-identification of these organizations as LGBTQI or inclusive a factor? This study is a comparative analysis of the governance of LGBTQI commercial districts in Chicago and Sydney. In each city, two places are selected, one representing a traditional gay commercial area and one representing an “inclusive” but not necessarily gay-identified commercial area. Intensive interviews are conducted with government, nonprofit and cultural agencies. Historical documents are reviewed. Both gay-identified and inclusive-identified place-based nonprofit organizations work toward improving general well-being beyond narrow business interests but are more likely to do so in supportive government funding and regulatory environments.
