Exactly what it sounds like -- a place for everyone, GBLT or not, to hang out, talk, make friends and relax.
~~If you're here to harass anyone, no matter what it's about, leave now.
--This includes pestering anyone about their orientation. No one has to say.
~~Nothing explicit, as well as all other site rules.
--You don't have to stay on topic, but if something important does come up, please try not to drown it out.
**As several people in the GSA have been frustrated trying to get Dark, Herbalist and Trident creatures, we are starting a GSA shop creature exchange. Any member of the GSA who is also a member of the Dark Brotherhood, Herbalist Guild or Order of the Trident can at any time send unnamed, unfrozen shopborns from those shops to me, and I will pay shop price + 500g to shop price + 1k (up to the seller) for each creature. Any GSA member who wants creatures from these shops, then, can buy whatever I have for shop price. What I have can be seen here, and will be sold on a first come first serve basis.
**As is evident to anyone checking the above link, stock is (predictably, as we're just starting) very low. I have plenty of gold, so anyone who can access the specialized shops and has a free egg slot, please buy one or two eggs for us! If you need gold to buy them, just let me know and I'll send it over.

Links to offsite, and maybe a bit of on-site, information, articles, stories, and anything else relevant for anyone who's curious. Anyone who has information to add, or would like another section added (I know more gender identities exist, but can't find information on them) let me know.
I'm not going to link to hate sites, articles that are hateful/condescending/otherwise against, or inaccurate information. I'll also try to warn about things that might refer to hate crimes/hate in general, or anything potentially graphic, but I can't guarantee I'll always know.
Also, please note that not all information linked to is guaranteed to be accurate. I don't know everything, and Wikipedia in particular can be and is changed every day, so if something seems glaringly inaccurate or condescending, there's a good chance it is. Similarly, if a link seems offensive to you, please let me know.
- Human Sexuality (Wikipedia) - Not much on orientation here, but potentially relevant for those who want to know everything.
- Sexual Orientation (Wikipedia)
- Homosexuality (Wikipedia)
- Bisexuality (Wikipedia)
- Pansexuality (Wikipedia)
Para's orientation! I'll be happy to babble at you if you're curious, but honestly I don't know anything that can't be found with a few hours' reading, except for some things that I suspect are just me.
- Asexuality (Wikipedia)
- The Asexuality Chronicles (Blip.tv and originally on Youtube) stories, information, and rants from an asexual college student (can be funny or depressing, depending on which you watch)
- AVEN's Overview, and three FAQs: General, for Family & Friends, and for anyone in a Relationship
- Apositive, a discussion site which, while kind of dead at the moment, is working on growing and does at least contain Para.
In very simplified terms, demisexuality is when a person doesn't find another attractive at first, but may find them attractive once they know the second person well/have an emotional connection to them.
- Demisexuality (AVEN's wiki)
- Heterosexuality (Wikipedia)
The -philic model of sexuality describes sexuality according to which sex a person is attracted to, with no information on the person's own sex or gender. I know of gynephilic (women-loving/female-loving) and androphilic (men-loving/male-loving), and presume there are also biphilic, panphilic, and aphilic or equivalents, but don't really know any more than what I've just said.
- Sexual Orientation (Wikipedia) this article doesn't focus on androphilia or gynephilia, but does have a section on it. I found Wikipedia's main article less relevant than this section, but it links to it as well.
Technically not sexuality, but who cares? I don't personally know much, but here's what I found:
- Gender Identity (Wikipedia)
- Transsexualism (Wikipedia)
- Third Gender (Wikipedia)
- Two-Spirit (Wikipedia)
- Intersexuality (Wikipedia)
Mostly because this didn't quite fit into information.
- It Could Happen To You (youtube) Warning: this is depressing. On the other hand, the motivation for activism of any kind is always depressing. Includes death, among other things.
