This is the part that caught my eye.
Suppliers must submit current and renewal MBE/WBE/LGBT/DOBE certificates
The victimhood certification enterprises must be engaged regularly (annually?) to renew victimhood certificates. This is an annuity!
Separately, I wonder how the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) determines that a business owner or shareholder is truly LGBTQIA+ and how their process is superior to self-certification as LGBTQIA+. Will there be a Barbra Streisand (2016: “I’ll move to Australia or Canada if Trump is president”) quiz for the would-be LGBTQIA+ person, as in the movie In & Out?
Peter: What was Barbra Streisand’s eighth album?
Howard: Color Me Barbra.
Howard: Everybody knows that!
Peter: Everybody where? The little gay bar on the prairie?
