#gentoo-glbt is a place for Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgendered people to discuss Gentoo, GNU/Linux or any other topic in a welcoming environement. If you join this channel please be advised that any foul language directed at us will get you banned immediatly. If you are not glbt you are welcome to join us in our discussions. Just remember to be polite and most importantly respectful.

<edit>
Please be advised that this is NOT an officially sanctioned Gentoo channel. However, the Devs and Mods of Gentoo have made it clear to me that as long as we behave and do not tarnish the Gentoo name we are welcome.

Providing support of The Gentoo operating system (in a glbt friendly environement) is the primary purpose behind this channel. Socialising is allowed as it is in all other gentoo support channels and is welcome. If you are questioning your sexuality or need emotional support we are here for you.

Please, if you can find it in your heart, make a donation to Gentoo and to freenode. These are both non-profit organisations and many of the hard working people behind them are volunteers. Even a $1.00 donation can make all the difference.

You can only make a forest by planting one tree at time :)

</edit>

Some of us are not comfortable revealing our orientation to our fellow gentooists. If this is the case for you then don't worry. I am in the process of getting a generic domain mask setup for anyone who enters the channel. I'll post here when I get that done.

<edit>
#Edit: see my post on page five of this thread if you need your domain/ip cloaked. By the way I donated $32.00 american and my cloak will be up tomorrow :)
</edit>
If anyone has any suggestions for the TOPIC of the channel or any other suggestions please post here or PM me.

Thank You
curtis119

I have emailed the staff at freenode concerning a generic domain/ip mask that will be automatically used for anyone entering the channel. I am awaiting a response.

I actually had to look up what transgendered meant. The term is much more complex then I imagined. The definition is here. Sorry if this is off topic :(

I have emailed the gentoo PR team asking for official sanction of this new channel. I am awaiting a response. If they decide not to give official sanction I will change the channel name to ##gentoo-glbt. If anyone interested in this channel will be kind enough to also send an email voicing your support I would be grateful.

Why do you have to define yourself through your sexuality?

Aren't we all just humans?
