    Tagg Magazine
    Eboné Bell is a business owner, speaker, and trailblazer who shines bright in the world of entrepreneurship, DEI, activism, and LGBTQ media. She is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Tagg Magazine. After seeing a lack of LGBTQ women represented in local publications, she decided to start a magazine and website to tell stories, provide resources, and create events. This year, Tagg Magazine celebrates ten years of telling thousands of stories, creating safe-spaces for queer women, and providing important resources for the LGBTQ community. Over the past four years, Tagg Magazine has been named “Top 25 LGBTQ-Owned Companies” by the Washington Business Journal. Eboné was recently featured in Forbes Magazine as an "Inspiring Black Entrepreneur Changing Our World." And that's exactly her mission: To create change and leave a stamp on this world. One of those stamps includes starting a student group for LGBTQ people of color while attending University of Maryland College Park. Eighteen years later the group is still going strong. ​She has produced such events as the annual Capital Queer Prom giving the older LGBTQ community a second-chance prom, Capital Pride Women’s Events, Pride in the Sky, and Put on the Gloves Fashion Show benefitting The Trevor Project, just to name a few. These events have raised over $50,000 for LGBTQ non-profit organizations. She continues her community work by serving on the board of the Equality Chamber Foundation, an organization providing financial awareness and economic opportunity to LGBTQ-owned businesses. In 2018, Eboné founded the Tagg Scholarship Fund—a scholarship created specifically for young, queer, women of color who can’t afford to attend school. In addition to running a queer women’s publication, she shares her knowledge and passion as a keynote speaker at conferences, schools, and events across the country.
