This week dotgay has launched a new video series intended to help simplify many of the details contained in its 300+ page application to ICANN*. The video series will lift many of the key elements contained in the application and present them in context, with examples and supporting comments from organizations and businesses endorsing the dotgay LLC bid.
The third and final ICANN meeting of 2012 opens in Toronto this weekend, bringing together ICANN stakeholders one last time before government 'early warnings' and 'formal objections' are issued against new TLD applicants. Recent press has suggested that '.gay' applicants may encounter resistance from some Arab nations, suggesting GAY is immoral and should not become a new TLD. The dotgay team will be in Toronto in full force during ICANN 45, advocating on behalf of the gay community and sharing the mission of the new .gay TLD.
* The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is a nonprofit private organization headquartered in Los Angeles, California, United States, that was created on September 18, 1998, and incorporated on September 30, 1998 to oversee a number of Internet-related tasks previously performed directly on behalf of the U.S. government by other organizations, notably the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), which ICANN now operates.
