Before adding members to the list, we ask that they provide us with some information about themselves so that we could determine if this list would meet their needs. You do not have to provide any details that you are not comfortable revealing, only enough for the moderators to get a basic sense why you are interested in joining. This process
helps ensure that this list remains a safe space for all parents to discuss the challenges they face.
We ask that people maintain the confidentiality of all list members. Many members will not want other people to know about their child’s sexual orientation, so we ask that members not share any information about the identity of list members with anyone. In addition, anything said on the list stays on the list, the content of emails is not to be shared with anyone who is not on the list.
While polite disagreements will be entertained, personal attacks on other members of the email list will not be tolerated. It is not permitted to criticize, blame, or otherwise attack other list members.
All posts are kept relevant to the intended purpose of this list, which is to discuss issues related to being Orthodox and a parent of a gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender child. Personal advertisements are not permitted. Likewise, we ask that people try and keep posts to a minimum and limit themselves to no more than 2 emails per day.
