Hello and welcome to the group.
A BIG THANK YOU TO ImperatorAlicia FOR OUR AWESOME NEW LOGO!!
And then this...
I bet you’re wondering about the name of the group and to put your minds at rest; no your Shepard does not have to be transgender, nor does your Shepard have to be a member of the LGBTQIA community. If you really want to get down to it, the reason I created this group is because my FemShep is trans. It wasn’t intentional; she just came out that way. After attempting to load the story I was writing for her into certain groups and getting denied on occasion due to her being trans, I created this group.
Is that a bit selfish? Sure, but there was another reason behind it and that is this:
If you think about it, many people forget that the community I mentioned above involves more than just gay and lesbian people. It also involves people who are still struggling with their identity or don’t really have one. People who are outsiders; people who are poor, rich, intersex, recovering from abusive relationships, addictions, and people who just want a place to fit in.
So if you get down to it, this group is also for them. The people who not only have a Shepard who is cisgendered or OC’s that they want to show off, but also people who don’t quite fit in. The people who are still invisible in this world of connection. This is the home I want to make for you all. To truly symbolize what the rainbow that the community is showing off. People who are from all different aspects of life, fandoms and who have many different interests that they want to express.
This group is not only meant to be Mass Effect inspired, but also to branch outward into other fandoms and Bioware properties.
So if you feel you have a place here, I bid you welcome and ask that you be courteous and respectful to all who are in this group and say this to you
