For any person, organization or business, .GAY will serve as a virtual Pride flag and a badge of honor demonstrating its inclusiveness. Everyone is welcome in the .GAY family!
A .GAY domain helps you to express support for the LGBTQ community. With each registration of a .GAY domain, 20% is donated to LGBTQ organizations and also creates a safer online space, thanks to the "Protection of .GAY rights" policy, which means that they will accept reports of any content that is harmful or harasses LGBTQ people and can be taken against by working to remove the content or by suspending the site.
Some .gay domains are premium names with a higher initial registration fee over a standard registration with all subsequent renewals and transfers at a standard rate. All search results will automatically reflect premium names fees.
