However, please be respectful that this discussion is specifically about issues and topics related to lesbian, gay, bi- or pansexual, trans, queer, questioning, demi- or asexual, intersex, non-binary, genderfluid, or any other sexual or gender minority, so please do not stray off-topic.
  • Please put anything graphic behind a tag.
  • As always, any shaming or hateful speech will not be tolerated — if you see some, please flag it ASAP.
