LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

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

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.

Goodnight cuddles by text each night, more sent by day. I cuddle my pillow and imagine it's him.  Oh I'm just enjoying the romance. (is stinging yet Dallas?)

Kissing on the 2nd date?  What happened to sex on the first date?  Or sex before the date.  You have to keep with the gay stereotype!

There may be man-kissing on Monday:  I'm going on a 2nd date!  :)

By the way those videos "missionaries of hate" etc  are blocked for me due to copyright - do you know if they exist anywhere else?

Man we gotta get you a date. I am SURE there are at least a couple of gay men in Dallas who need some kissin and huggin.

Dallas, I don't think the repeal of DADT killed the birds. The last time I kissed a man, the clouds parted, the sun shone warmly on the earth, and the birds sang beautiful melodies.

Just postedthis discussion in the main forums, but as it touches on a number of gay-related issues, I'd be grateful if members from this forum could take a look.
