LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

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

Members: 18
Latest Activity: Nov 16

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.

I can't afford the Sundance Channel. Is it as good as "The God Who Wasn't There"?

Has anyone been looking at "For the Bible Tells Me So", airing on the Sundance Channel over the weekend? fascinating.

All right dammit! I'll admit, i'm very much a bisexual. I might lose some friends because of this (at least that's what i fear), but hopefully i will get more because of my honesty.

We'll see...

I don't know about all that, I've been on the wagon for 15 years.

PLEA FOR HELP! Lover is an addict. It started with God of War...and then Lara Croft paid us a visit. Now he's hooked on the hard junk: WORLD OF WARCRAFT. Need to find a way out...I feel like I am surrounded by cartoons everywhere- there are no real people, just Batman, Spiderman, X-men, and Jesus...

Hi, all.
Are there any male members of this group in the Chicago area? I'm looking for other guys (as friends, maybe more). Too often, if I look in the larger gay community, the theist/non-theist thing can be an issue. :( Plus, I have the further liability of being "older"!

Hey all-

Check out the Ted Haggard entry in the Atheist News group. It's very relevant to the GLBT community!
