Hey @s0, the chatroom owner has responded and clarified that it was meant to be a recommendation instead of anything else. :)
@ParadoxicalMusing thanks for the heads-up, I have received a reply clarifying it was only meant to be a recommendation (which I appreciate) from the chatroom owner. :)
It was brought to my attention that there's a Matrix/Riot.im LGBT chatroom (filled with homophobic messages) has linked itself to our website https://lgbt.io.
A Masto user and myself have contacted the owner of the chatroom (appeared to be "thekyriarchy") but no response so far.
I'm not entirely sure if this is a pure mistake or a troll to our site.
So, can you all kindly help boosting this toot and hopefully some people might come forward with more info or ways to contact the chatroom owner?
Thank you very much!

Hey there! I’m Dirk and new to this instance. I noticed some other people are doing #introduction posts so I’ll do the same!
I’m bisexual and cisgender (he/him). I spent the last four years teaching radio and television classes at the small rural high school I attended when I was a kid. I resigned at the end of the school year and now I’m getting ready to go back to school to study graphic design.
I co-host a podcast called “OMG So Random Hehe!” and I love designing posters for concerts and other events in my spare time. I’m excited to be here and to get to know all of you!
Vila Eloise is a #queer house project located in a village in Galiza (northwest of Iberian peninsule).
We are just setting the house ready for visitors. Staying is free (some abilities trade is appreciated whenever possible) and we plan to offer a work space for artists, meetups and workshops.
Every queer person is welcome, we are a safe space for people of any gender id or orientation (including all non binary genders, a-spec, pan people...) and sex workers. See our site for more info on our philosophy and stances.
Hi @Tina, I have only made one restriction to the direct retweets. You can still push original tweets or use the quote method to crosspost the useful content from Twitter to here.
LGBT+, YouTube discrimination, lawsuit
"According to the lawsuit, YouTube algorithms flag videos about LGBT+ issues as “shocking,” “inappropriate,” “offensive,” and “sexually explicit,” meaning that they are then demonetised, or made ineligible for paid advertising.
YouTube has also been accused of blocking LGBT+ creators from purchasing advertising on other videos, while allowing hate-filled videos to remain online and even advertise on LGBT+ channels."
"Celso Dulay and Chris Knight of Glitter Bomb TV[...] said that a Google employee told them that their video had been flagged for explicit content because it discussed “the gay thing.”"
"Chase Ross said that his videos are routinely demonetised or placed under a restricted filter because he is transgender."
"Bria Kam and Chrissy Chambers told a similar story. They said that after their videos began to be demonetised and restricted, their revenue has fallen from $3,500 to just $500 a month."
Announcement Regarding Twitter Crosspost on LGBT.io [15th Aug 2019]
Dear members of lgbt.io,
If you use Twitter Crosspost tool, you must set [Privacy for retweets when crossposted] to "Unlisted" (this means only to your followers).
For original tweets and quotes, as of this announcement, you're still permitted to post them to public timelines. But it is very likely that we will restrict further in the future.
Sorry for this restriction, but the purpose of doing so is to keep Mastodon as Mastodon.
