Is the LGBT Group meeting your needs? [View all]

In a few weeks we'll be coming up on half a year with the DU3 format. We've met several challenges over that time and worked out most of the kinks on an entirely new hosting system. I invite you now to take the opportunity to have your voice heard regarding the group itself. If conflicts arise, let's remain courteous and friendly. We're all here to support the same cause after all! In addition to the poll, feel free to add comments, suggestions, rants, and raves about your experience so far with the LGBT Group on DU3.
