Sabrina Riddle

Owner of Orson restaurant, bar and lounge in San Francisco; founder and Creative Director of the fashion house Bind; and Chief Creative Officer of dot429, an LGBT professional networking service, Sabrina Riddle wears more hats than most. dot429.com launched this past January and hosts in-person networking events in key cities. Riddle hopes her efforts will bring more LGBT people together. “Being gay is something very powerful—we have a culture and life experience that sets us up to be among the most interesting, creative, compassionate, generous, happy and successful people in the world. I want to spread this gay manifesto and create ways for people to integrate it into their core beliefs and values—by helping them connect, share, engage and experience the power of being gay and live lives that are beyond meaningful.” -CB
