New group aims to support D.C.'s LGBTQ commercial real estate community

Several local commercial real estate practitioners have launched a group representing the region’s LGBTQ community to provide a support network and create more opportunities within Greater Washington. Representatives from some of D.C.’s most recognizable names in the industry — Edens, Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners and Marriott International Inc. (NASDAQ: MAR) among them — have launched Q City, which has met twice and assembled a seven-person steering committee. About 40 people turned out for Q City’s event last month in Union Market.
