The Russian River LGBT Tourism Guild (the Guild) is a subcommittee of the Russian River Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of the Guild is to provide information to the LGBT traveller about the recreational opportunities available to LGBT visitors in the Russian River Recreation Area (Forestville, Rio Nido, Guerneville, Monte Rio and Duncan’s Mills). The goal of the Guild is to increase the number of LGBT visitors to the area during the ‘off-season’ months of October through April.


The Guild is open to anyone owning or operating a LGBT friendly business in the Russian River Recreation Area. It is also open to any business providing activities for visitors staying in the Russian River Recreation Area.

Any business operating within the Russian River Recreation Area can participate and have their business listed on the Guild’s website for free. Free listings show your business contact information and have a very brief description. If you want more info listed, a photo, a bigger photo (you size queen, you) then we have paid participation levels that will help you get your message out. Shoot us an email if you want information about being listed.


The Guild is managed by a Steering Committee made up of members of the Russian River Chamber of Commerce. Although only Chamber members may serve on the Steering Committee anyone participating in the Guild can attend steering meetings and participate in the management of the marketing effort. Volunteers are needed for fundraising, trade shows and events.
