As for where I'm coming from: one of my best friends is NB and likes playing NB characters, so I'll share what I've learned from forming 3 different groups with them, as well as from my current "college group": me, a friend in Iceland, and a friend in New York who actually went to college together, plus two people my NY friend met there (including an NB playing for the first time).I guess theoretically the three of them could be in the same place sometimes, but in practice we all enjoy playing over Skype without having to put on pants and leave the house.^__^ If someone balks, well, you've discovered that conflict before anyone got too invested, and they can self-select out and find a different group (or, worst case scenario, you can do so.) This will be especially important if point 1 doesn't pan out and you start looking on the broader Internet; I'd put something in your profile (which can of course be anonymous if necessary) that will weed out the bozos quickly.
” and she plays along with “yes hun, we’re low on eggs and cheese, and also get some bread” Now a roleplay has begun, and you can continue it with something like “will do, I’ll also get wine, cheese, and grapes for later ! After she texts you back wondering what it is that you want to ask her, that’s when you knock her off of her autopilot by saying something like “I’m thinking about quitting my job and becoming a mime.” And now, you’ve thrown her a “bait” text with roleplaying potential.
” Keep in mind that this can happen even if you’ve never even met this girl. Here’s an example of a text conversation I had using this technique: As soon as you’ve got her engaged and her buying temperature spiked…
Due to the nature of the site, I'm pretty sure it is a good place to start your search, because people there are unusually open about gender* and, even if someone is not ok with having a queer in their game, the whole sexuality thing is so in the open that talking about it openly shouldn't really be a problem. Your last sentence is part of why I chose not to answer this question.
Keep in mind that this is still the anonymous Internet, where trolls, haters and nasty people lurk. The person asking the question is acting as advocate for someone who seems, per the askers points, is not comfortable with how often they run into rejection and negative energy.
Once you've identified the players, our questions about online-roleplaying should help you figure out the mechanics and address hurdles involved with actually playing.
Good luck - and may all your games be free of problem-players, though we'll be here if they're not. It just seems like a lot of stuff in this answer is not about finding a lgbt-friendly online group, which is what the question is directly asking.
It tends to eventually come up and ruin an otherwise fun game night.
I don't want to play in a don't ask, don't tell roleplaying campaign.
I noticed that even a site such as f-list, where the first thing you see about any character is their sex (and there are like seven different ones, including queer) and the character sheets have a kink section, there are a lot of players who don't care about playing smutty scenes and just want to play "clean" games.
In sites like that, the vast majority of roleplay is done in rooms, with everyone watching and sometime adding OOC noise, but they are also a good place to organize games on different platforms, such as you and your friend want.
The internet has plenty of people whom you've never met who are casually rude to others thanks to the anonymity the internet holds as a feature. Also, answerers should keep in mind the Back It Up!
