Domains .gay

The extension .gay is already available for registration

.gay is the opportunity to create a space dedicated to the LGBTQ community on the internet. From artists and small corporations to big ones, they all are welcomed on .gay.

.gay wants to be a free hate space on the internet, checking and eliminating any domain that incite hate or denigrate the LGBTQ community. Domains with offensive words or promoting bullying will not be accepted.

.gay is not just a simple domain, the 20% of the income of every registered domain, will be used to support various LGBTQ organizations like GLAAD and Center link.
