Gender & Sexuality forum: now open!

Hey everyone,

You spoke and it was thus: due to popular demand and to celebrate Pride month, we're delighted to launch our new Gender & Sexuality forum!

Why not head over now and take a look around. Make sure you look through the guidelines (and add your own suggestions) and read all about the history of Pride

This is your space - feel free to make it yours and post away!

  • Possible LGBT forum?

    Hello, i was wondering if we could possibly see an LGBT forum in the future? Especially the trans section, as it would enable users to share their experiences and also the surgical procedure and hormone replacement stages. Things like that for the community??

    I think this is a really good idea, as part of the LGBT community, it's very rare to find any forums for us and it'd be great to share experiences or help others who are struggling with coming out etc

      Yes that's exactly why we need it! Its a big part in someones mental health aswell if they are being bullied etc.. as im a member of the lgbt community this is something i would love to see.

        This is a really interesting idea, and if there's a real calling for this kind of space on The Mix then we'll look into it for sure. A change like this wouldn't happen very quickly, but this is definitely something we can discuss as a team. Watch this space...

        Really appreciate the suggestion!

              A lot of you probably won't know but I am bisexual myself, so I love this idea. This is a big part of a person's mental health so I think it would benefit a lot of people.

                    I'm surprised there isn't one too... I guess if we had a question we'd post it in Sex and Relationships?

                      I feel like an LGBT forum would be a great idea! i'm ftm myself and my sexuality is unlabeled, the LGBT community is one of my strong points of expertise x
                      however until then, one of the other forums i use puts gender issues in health and wellbeing and sexuality in sex and relationships which we could do? x

                          Hey guys,

                          Just a quick update: we will be creating a forum for this

                          The plan is to create a 'Gender & Sexuality' forum to house discussions around LGBT+ issues, sexual and gender identity and all related topics.
                          You can find out more about this over in this thread, where you can also feed into the plan by completing our survey

                          Things will be moving fairly quickly, so head over there now to have your say.

                          Exciting times!
