About 50 Helena businesses have signed up for Open to All-Helena, an initiative aimed at increasing the visibility of LGBTQ patrons, employees and their supporters.

Kim Leighton, Pride Foundation regional development organizer, said the reaction to the project is encouraging. Leighton helped organize a rally at Hub Coffee to voice support for the LGBTQ community locally and nationwide.

"We're not going anywhere," Leighton told the crowd packed into the downtown eatery.
