The .gay top-level domain represents a historic step forward: it increases visibility and creates more LGBTQ-friendly space online. For LGBTQ individuals, organizations, businesses, and their allies, .gay serves as a virtual Pride flag and inclusive badge of honor. Everyone — from independent creators and budding small business owners to dedicated LGBTQ organizations, inclusive global brands, and supportive allies — is welcome at .gay.
.gay doesn’t just look good in your profile bio, email address, or on your business card — it does good, too! For every domain, .gay dedicates a 20% donation from all new registration revenue (not just profit!) to benefit LGBTQ organizations. Currently, .gay proudly supports GLAAD and CenterLink as inaugural beneficiaries.
.gay is committed to maintaining an LGBTQ-friendly space. Going above and beyond domain industry standards, .gay has created a .gay Rights Protections policy that discourages homophobic, anti-LGBTQ usage and provides specific, enforcable remedies for domains that intentionally use .gay to malign or harm LGBTQ individuals or groups.
