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.


Key Terms



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.

Heterosexual
A person who is sexually and romantically attracted to a person of the opposite sex.

Homosexual
A person who is sexually and romantically attracted to a person of the same sex.

Bisexual
A person who is sexually and romantically attracted to persons of the same and opposite sex.

Demisexual
A person who is only sexually attracted to someone with whom they share a deep emotional connection.

Pansexual
A person who is sexually and romantically attracted to any human being, regardless of orientation, gender identity, or sex.

Asexual
A person who does not feel sexual attraction to any gender or sex. An asexual person can still have romantic attraction to other people, just not sexual attraction.

Heteroromantic
A person who is romantically attracted to a person of the opposite sex, but not sexually attracted.

Homoromantic
A person who is romantically attracted to a person of the same sex, but not sexually attracted.

Biromantic
A person who is romantically attracted to persons of the same and opposite sex, but not sexually attracted.

Demiromantic
A person who is romantically attracted to someone with whom they share a deep emotional connection, but not sexually attracted.

Panromantic
A person who is romantically attracted to any human being, regardless of orientation, gender identity, or sex, but not sexually attracted.

Aromantic
A person who does not feel romantic attraction to any gender or sex. An aromantic person can still have physical attraction to other people and desire platonic relationships.

Transgender
An umbrella term for several types of gender identities.

Transsexual
A person whose gender is inconsistent with their biological sex. They may or may not have undergone sexual reassignment surgery.

Cisgender
A person whose physical body matches their gender.

Genderqueer
A person who does not feel they fit into either a female or male gender.

Gender fluid
A person who moves between genders

Intersex(ed)
Having elements of both genders. For instance, a person who has XY-chromosomes and develops female secondary sexual characteristics or a person who has ambiguous genitalia.

Gender dysphoria / Gender identity disorder
Feeling uncomfortable with the gender or sex one is assigned at birth.

The one in social groups was so interesting and popular i'm sure this'll explode with members :D

Ok wait, what the hell? raising a genderless baby?
Isn't being a transgender like being gay where your born like that? how will this benefit the child in anyway apart from make him less sexist?
also so annoying that transgender isn't in the default dictionary on chrome -.-

No, I'd say it's not, using myself as an example. I am transgender, but I am not gay. I'm not interested in malexmale or femalexfemale, just malexfemale.

I don't know how I feel about that story. On one hand, it does kind of appear like an experiment, but it doesn't seem any worse than the alternative of assigning a sex to a child who knows nothing about what that'll mean further down the road.

Welcome!

All gay people are born like that, excluding the bisexual people who chose to live exclusively heterosexual or homosexual lifestyles.

Transgender is when your biological unimportant sex doesn't match your mental actual sex.

OMG That Afghanistan one was too good.

I'm joining this group. Definately. I wanted to join the last one, but I wasn't compelled to. I'm only joining now, not because I want to, but because I have friends that are gay, and that I don't see why they are so looked down upon. After all, they are just people, like you and I.

I think the question of activity has been answered already.

I just read that article on Afghanistan, and I thought it was awesome. It's funny how our symbols often tend to get lost and/or twisted in translation, eh?

I LOVE KATHY GRIFFIN! When she comes on the TV I become a squealing fanboy. And yes, she is correct. Though I believe the statistic is actually 94.2%.

Speaking of Kathy Griffin, my second favorite gay-idol next to Lady Gaga and my favorite comedian, I am so mad she canceled My Life on the D-List.

I was devastated, it took me a while to forgive her for that one. She's my favourite gay icon, even above Lady Gaga, and I can't accept that I'll have to live my life without a yearly fix of D-List antics - my new dream is for a show called "Kathy Lately". Think about how awesome that would be - it can air straight after Chelsea Lately lol

I think Lady Gaga's a cissexist, arrogant, white lady who thinks she speaks for everybody gay and otherwise, but hey. I can be a radical and ruin all your fun some other time if I want to.

As for me?

Androgynous, bigender, pansexual, queer, gay, trans*, genderqueer, unicorn, repeat. In any order.

I can be whatever I want to be, you got that, lovebirds? I'll be the Queen of Faeries if I want to be. As if I wasn't already that already.

I know that transgender doesn't mean that the person is gay/lesbian (thank waterloo road for that xD) I meant isn't it something your born with and not something you just pick up somewhere along the line.

Well all lady gaga is doing is standing up for what she believes is right, it's the fact that she's a celebrity that makes everything she does epically huge and important.

EDIT: OMG how did i miss that last time, GAY STUDIES! :D At first i laughed thinking it would be easy, but now that i think about it. It would actually be pretty difficult to teach, with laws being passed all over the place things are always changing.
But nevertheless i would still totally take that class x]

I'm not sure what to do with this post, but if it means you're joining us also, then welcome! And you don't have to like Lady Gaga, it's just something most of us share

May I join please? I fall into the gay catergoy.

The Afghanistan story was quite interesting. Maybe they shouldn't have spread the truth about the flags meaning. Who knows what could have happened if they continued hang the pride flag all around. There could've been a disco revival in that country. XD

Don't post anything that is insulting to a group of people, it kind of defeats the entire purpose of this club.

And, for the record, I am not talking about your Lady Gaga hating, I am talking about how you list a bunch of qualities you believe she has, then say she's white. Whether or not you meant anything by it isn't the point, it's how other people conceive what you said. When you list a group of bad characteristics, then in the same sentence directly afterwards you say that they're white, it gives the vibe that that's something you don't like.

What if I said, "I think Oprah is a cissexist, arrogant, black lady.." Kind of gives the vibe of me not liking her because of her race.

Racism is a two-way street, just like any other form of hatred. It's also not a very bright idea to openly say some very hurtful things about someone other people in the club care so much about. You're entitled to your opinion, but it will cause a flame war, and no me gusta.

Welcome.

I was wondering when something like this would be made, after the social groups died. D:
I'd like to join.

Maybe I'll be active in something besides the one or two clubs I'm in. =w=

Hey Drew, welcome! People have told me about the LGBT social group, but it was before my time and that sucks because I really wanted to read it as part of my PokeCommunity history research

Hey there Charizard! I think this'll be an easier group to be active in, there's only so much you can say about something you're a fan of, but this is far more broad Welcome!
