The ever-growing list of usable Internet domains has increased by one this week and the newest addition has some political undertones. Starting yesterday, the .LGBT domain launched to the public meaning that people can now use .LGBT for their emails or websites as opposed the usual .com or .net that most websites use.
One of the proudest things of my lifetime, is witnessing the growing acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the United States. While hatred and discrimination still exist, it is far less nowadays. Heck, the number of states that allow gay marriage is increasing all of the time, while more and more people are being open-minded about gender. Today, a monumental thing is happening on the Internet — the .LGBT domain launches to the public. What does this mean? Rather than .net, .com, or many others, you can snatch up a domain name ending in .LGBT too.
