Arielle Clark ’17, who received her MBA from the College of Business, wanted to create a sober space for the LGBTQ+ community to connect in a safe, healthy way. The first of its kind in Louisville, Sis Got Tea is an affirming space anyone can occupy without judgement or age restrictions. 

LGBTQ+ individuals are at an increased risk of substance abuse, self-harm, suicide, and experiencing domestic violence and homelessness. Clark ensures her business is an inclusive place to combat the growing concerns amongst these populations through the strong presence of community.

“LGBTQ individuals need representation, acceptance, protection, and positive affirmation regarding their existence,” said Clark. “With community support, LGBTQ folks feel welcomed, heard, and safe, and these things are mandatory to survive.”
