ETHOS

Established in June 2020, Chez Nous Guide (French for our home) is a volunteer-run inclusive and intersectional home for businesses, artists, and organizations owned and run by historically marginalized people around the world and our allies. We are dedicated to amplifying voices that have been—and continue to be—silenced by society: people of color, women, the LGBTQIA+ community.

Crowdsourced by our community, we exist to give people around the world the resources they need to support diversity, shop inclusively, and travel ethically. In our house, we are all family. Let’s demand more from the world for ourselves, our ancestors, and our children.

To add a listing, partner with the site, or just say hey, email Kristyn Potter (she/her) at cheznouslovesyou@gmail.com

Bienvenue à Chez Nous (welcome to our home).

Kristyn Potter is Founder/CEO of Left Bank Media, an international media company that includes Left Bank Magazine (music/art/skate), High Street Disco (feminism sub-brand on Left Bank Magazine), and Chez Nous. The St. Louis native, New York-based founder got her start in media in 2013, after completing graduate school for Media Communications and relocating to NYC. She has worked in marketing and on creative teams for some of the world’s biggest companies, including Getty Images, New York Magazine, and Sony, before branching out on her own.

She created Left Bank Media to surface underground voices—across music, feminism, and social issues.
