.GAY domains are new around here but that doesn’t mean there aren’t already some great contenders out there. Of course, this isn’t a contest but we thought we would round up some of our favorite uses of the .GAY domain name to inspire you to get out there and be seen. Let’s give these .GAYs a shout out for paving the way for a brand new space online.
Here are some fierce new examples. We hope they inspire you to get out there.
.GAY Domains for Media, Blogs and Magazines
FTM is a media hub that might, quite literally, have everything you’ve been looking for, including an advice section. Arts and culture, love and relationships, politics and social issues as well as pages devoted to sport and fashion… if we’ve forgotten something, FTM sure hasn’t. Using the .GAY domain cements them as a community hub and reminds visitors that this is their home.
.GAY Domains for Portfolios
A portfolio is your online gallery, business card and profile. It’s the face you serve in this digital world. Raksha Muthukumar is a queer activist, technologist, organizer and public speaker. Her portfolio highlights her strengths, motivations and goals and does double duty as her portfolio and podium.
.GAY Domains for Nonprofit and Fundraising
The Queen’s Guard is a community organization in rural Alaska that works to support the LGBTQI+ community by counteracting negative protests with peaceful demonstrations. Other great organizations include Pittsburgh.gay, a site built by a Pittsburgh LGBTQ organization to share community resources and Queer.ulm.gay, a digital community calendar and directory for LGBTQ organizations in Ulm, German. All these sites provide a wonderful array of helpful resources and provide a safe space online.
.GAY Domains for Podcasts
A podcast is an amazing way for your voice to be heard—and a podcast on a .GAY domain provides a home for your podcast where you can also be seen. Kosher Queers are talking all things queer and Jewish. In their words, Kosher Queer come together on a weekly basis with their “queer takes on Torah, jokes about Judaism and a thorough look at the parsha and haftarah.” This group of friendly faces and voices also takes on discussions of celebrity, family, relationships and fashion (plus so much more) with humor and youthful exuberance.
.GAY Domains for Events
A website for an event or series of planned events is a genius way to make sure your guests have all the right details leading up to your event. Here we have a website for Gay Days at Disney World theme park where visitors can shop, find out news, get event details, buy tickets as well as see concert line ups and picture galleries.
