What is The Rainbow Connection?
The Rainbow Connection is essentially The PokeCommunity’s version of a Gay/Straight Alliance. It is a place for people who are gay, bisexual, transgender or whatever else you may be to come and share your stories, get advice, and discuss everything from developments in the fight for equality to what it means to live day-to-day in our shoes. Supporters of the LGBT community are more than welcome (in fact, encouraged!) to come and join in the conversation – so really, it’s a club for everybody except bigots!
Rules and Guidelines
We’re a pretty well established community now, so we know that it’s a fairly lax place to post and we know by now what’s OK and what’s not. But for the new people, lets take it from the top:
Follow all forum rules. Failure to do so will result in you being dealt with accordingly by a member of staff.
You do not have to be a supporter or member of the LGBT community to join, but you must still be respectful. No bigotry will be tolerated.
If somebody asks a question, answer it seriously. If somebody has a real issue, the last thing they need is to be trolled.
If you have any questions or problems concerning this club, PM me. I’m very good with getting back to people quickly.
We use a lot of words here that you might only understand if you've paid much previous attention to the LGBT community. Here's a handy list of some of those words in case you get stuck, provided to us by Scarf.
