I run gsa_lj, one of the largest and fastest growing gay-straight alliances on LiveJournal. However, despite our initial mission to be a support network for youth, the focus of the community has evolved. Our members are largely educated, mature, and eager to expand their horizons. Previous outreach efforts have been made to teachers, parents, and those of faith in an effort to diversify our ranks.
Personally, I'm a gay Republican with a libertarian streak, although most members are liberal. And while the focus of the community is largely on the U.S. (since most members are Americans), but we have many Canadian members, and cover international news. Personally, I'd like to see more non-Americans in the community, in an effort to have more unique perspectives.
Discussion of relevant politics and current events are common, but the community is multi-faceted. I’m attempting to further increase the level of intellectual discourse. We’re always looking to better ourselves.
I ask that you join our efforts, if you’re interested in such issues. At the very least, check out the community. See the type of posts and comments that are present. Read our user-info page, and see for yourself why our members are satisfied. I have a feeling you’ll be impressed.
If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me.
