A community supported .gay TLD will ensure the community is protected from potential abuse.

Read the open letter sent from Michael Bach, Founder and CEO of CCDI, sent to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)  regarding the treatment by ICANN of dotgay
LLC’s (“dotgay”) application to administer the proposed .gay top level domain (TLD).
