LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

Nontheist lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people & friends.

Latest Activity: yesterday

Forum is now open for comments only, due to limited moderation.

The original creator has been absent 8 years.  She may no longer identify as Lesbian or as Atheist, but could still experience discrimination due to being listed as creator of this group.  This group does come up on internet search with this person, and her photo photo, as group creator.  We live in era when discrimination can be expected to increase on many fronts.

I moderated since that time. On several occasions, I requested that another member moderate, but was unable to find a volunteer who would actively moderate content.

Please be aware, posts left active on this group, especially discussion forum, can be hazardous to members, even ones who have been gone for many years.  In most states and countries, there is no protection for LGBT people regarding employment, housing, or employment.  The same is true regarding atheists.  Some members may not even be aware of discrimination, and may not be aware that their old posts and images are still there to come back and haunt them.  Posts and the membership list are visible on internet searches.

There has been at least one case of a member of Atheist Nexus experiencing employment discrimination due to their membership. 

Another member of Atheist Nexus was murdered in India, in 2011 (Ajita Kamal).  As far as I can tell, the perpetrator and motive were never found, but Kamal was a known atheist, and known atheists are frequently targeted for brutal killings in South Asia.

Any member who posts, without having their own photo or name on their screen name and avatar, is expressing implied agreement, by default, about the importance of privacy, even on the internet.

A controversial group needs an active moderator, who will look out for the needs and safety of the members, as much as possible in such a forum.

As has recently been done, posts on Atheist Nexus are subject to screenshots.  They are also be subject to internet search.

I recommend that interested members start a new LGBT group, so that there is no issue with long absent group creator and no longer having a moderator.  Until that time, this group is open for a rolling comment wall.  I am not able to expire comments without closing the entire comment page, due to host program (Ning) limitations on moderation.

No one will believe that pic.  They are both past puberty.

Dallas, Protect your eyes!  It's like looking at an eclipse?  You might be permanently blinded - I hope it's not too late!

Tony - from one of the blogs I follow when I should be doing something more useful.  That was grom Joe.my.god - see links above.  He's one of the top gay bloggers, and ardently godless.  A bit "NewYorky", but I can live with that.

Where did you find this? What kind of duck-butter is this guy trying to sell? Marriage is not necessary for procreation. While it has served a good purpose for this, it is not the end all and be all for marriage. What a maroon. When over 50% of all marriages fail, something is already broke. Try working on that for a change. Idiot!

It was either this video, or the picture of Rick Santorum in his swimming suit.

What an asshole this guy is!  "My scientific experience".  What - he had coitus and his wife became pregnant, so that's a scientific experiment about marriage equality?

DPN - It WILL happen to you.  Probably soon - it always happens when you decide it won't.  Just continue to not believe, and you will have what you desire.

Very cute -- and fun! (Yes, I just now watched it!) Probably never going to happen to me, but more power to everyone.

With  so many  challenges, it was nice to see a happy wedding dance. Now and then there are same sex wedding videos on Youtube.  No idea who they are.  They are there to enjoy.

I don't think so - not any more than we're expected to know any of the other denizens of the Internet.
