Hey y'all my name is Jae and I was thinking of starting a chat. Although I want to keep this chat as open and free as possible, there must be some rules to abide by:. I have a Discord .
The only requirement is that you are respectful of everyone. Find us on Facebook. Asking for general location is okay. Asking about pronouns is excellent.
By ing this community and the channel, you are indicating your acceptance of these rules and agree to abide by them. The webclient does not work well on phones. Phone screens are too small.
If you're on your phone, get a proper client they're free and come chat that way. Be aware that the channel is not always a bustling hive of activity. If it's quiet when you enter, say hello and stick around!
Yay for queers
Your patience will be rewarded. Also, most of the channel's regulars are currently in North America or western Europe, so if you come in at a time when most of us are likely asleep, you are less likely to find people to chat with. If the above doesn't work, you can connect here.
You must change the channel listed in the box to yayforqueers! If at any point you need help setting up an IRC client, enter the chat with the webclient above and ask around in the channel.
Someone there should be able to help out. Little known fact: People don't connect to each other online the way most people think they do.
If you and I are DMing on Facebook, our computers aren't directly connected to each other. There's more than just your computer and mine involved in sending our messages back and forth.
There's also the Facebook server - a big computer that acts as a middleman. I send a DM, the server gets it and passes it on, and then you receive it. This all happens very very fast, but the point is that you have to connect to a service on another computer in order to message someone. A client is anything you run on your computer or device that accesses a service.
Messaging apps like Facebook Messenger, Discord, Snapchat, and FaceTime are clients, because the app on your computer or device accesses the messenger service through the internet and lets you talk to other people. If you can't get LimeChat to work, you can use Colloquy or Adium.
Yay for Queers is a supportive chat room primarily for new Trans folks.
If you're looking for support, information, community, or people to just talk to in real time, this is the place to be. Please note that none of us is any kind of therapist; we're here as helpful friends, not proper counselors.
Already familiar with IRC? The server we use is irc. If for some reason you cannot download a client, or you can't get any downloaded client to connect to the channel, you can use the webclient. Just click the green "Start This is the webclient.
Yay for Queers may be accessed by using any of various IRC clients, including the webclient above. The webclient's okay, but it's better to have your own.
If you don't have one installed on your computer or device, use the links below to get one, then use the step-by-step instructions I've provided to set it up. All of the clients listed here are completely free. Skip this if you're not interested. Moving on.
