Welcome to Gay / LGBTQI Atheists & friends!

I will be taking a reduced role at Atheist Nexus as of Oct 1, 2017. I will not be moderating this group after that time, and I will be re-zeroing most of my groups and comments.

That will leave this group without a moderator. Since this group was started by a member who hasn't visited Nexus for many years, it is not possible to select or designate a moderator. Instead, I will send notification to Br. Richard that the group will be without a moderator. It will then be up to him to decide how to proceed.

Since this is a popular group, I recommend that a member start up a new group for quotations, so that the members can continue adding and reading their favorite quotes.

Thanks and happy reading!

if you double click on the video, it takes you to youtube and doesn't cut off the right-most part....  :-)

Something on a lighter note... part is relevant to this group, and part is just plain clever - one-man A Capella.

Fallen Angel, truly a horrible report.

sorry for typos - the strange word there is "heart breaking". Not headt resking. Damn keypad.

It does kind of feel like this is the tipping point for trans issues. I get a lot of LGBTI news vis RSS and never had there been as much on the transgender side as now. Every revolution is messy, I hope this one is better.

The headt resking part for me is the almost constant news, or it feels like it, regarding anti-transgender violence. Employment and social acceptsnce have a long way to go too.

In this group, all LGBTI people and friends are embraced and welcomed. As the moderator, I post now and then but I love to see others posting and discussing important and not so important issues, building community and becoming friends.

Hi Fallen Angel, well I have been a member of this group for quite some time and I am sure everyone here knows my transgender status and I have been accepted with no problem.  Us "Ts" have to make ourselves visible which we tend not to do.  I join into everything under the LGBT banner and I have always been made a full partner in the activities.  Too many of us are not out and proud and until we get fully involved we will appear on the outside I am involved with SAGE and PROMO and I belong to a number of lesbian groups and the only place I have ever found prejudice has been OLOC.  When I was made aware of their bias I promptly resigned and I hear that a number of non T ladies have also dropped membership.

My advice, don't complain - just get involved.  It works.

i think the issue of transgenders is kind of not being addressed and kind of swept under the table and thoroughly diluted into gay rights and sexuality, transsexualism is actually a very different issue, it has to do with gender and gender expression, so, im just leaving this message here for atheists to see so hopefully they can help create some awareness for the trans community and encourage people to get educated about what being trans really is, thank you :)

ps. not that you guys don't care about the trans community already, just putting this out there cause, you know, poular atheists often talk about the lgbt community and mention homosexuality a lot but they don't really cover gender identity and gender expression, which i think they should...maybe it might get someone's attention out there

Chrissie, what a wonderful life you have lived and yu made some tough choices. It must have been a challenge to decide to make such an important change in your life, even as you could not have known the hidden risks you were taking. What if you didn't like the choice you made? or What if you were unhappy with your new self? I respect your wisdom and courage to take on such a life's journey and now can describe your experiences first hand. 

I am very happy you joined this group.
