#StillWe Lead Session #1 - Facilitator
Eboné F. Bell is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Tagg Magazine and Tagg Communication LLC. After seeing a lack of queer women represented in local publications (around DMV), she decided to start a magazine and website to tell stories, provide resources and create events.
Eboné was recently featured in Forbes Magazine as an “Inspiring Black Entrepreneur Changing Our World.”
This year Tagg Magazine will celebrate eight years of telling thousands of stories, creating safe-spaces for the queer women, and providing important resources for the LGBTQ community. Over the past three years, Tagg Magazine has been named “Top 25 LGBTQ-Owned Companies” by the Washington Business Journal.
Last year, Eboné founded the Tagg Scholarship Fund—a scholarship created specifically for young queer woman of color who can’t afford to attend school. After realizing that only 23% of Black LGBTQ college students graduate, she wanted to make a difference within marginalized communities.
In addition to running a successful business, she shares her knowledge and passion at conferences, festivals, fundraisers, panel discussions, and similar events across the country.
