Community Standards

First and foremost, be kind to one another.

My2024 is a forum for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) individuals—and others who self-identify as part of our community—to express their hopes, dreams, and wild predictions about the future. In order to ensure that My2024 remains a community that is welcoming and open to everyone, we ask that everyone follow these community norms:

NO …

  • Hate Speech
  • Sexually Explicit or Graphic Content
  • Violence or Threats
  • Bullying or Harassment

My2024 is a place for your imagination to run wild. While we invite you to challenge existing norms, institutions, practices, services, and more, we do not permit discrimination or harassment targeting groups or individuals, particularly due to actual or perceived attributes such as based on sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, race, ethnicity, color, religion, disability, HIV status, genetic history, medical history, national origin, family status, veteran status and/or legal status.

My2024 carefully monitors submissions to assure they follow our community norms and reserves the right to remove any content at anytime. We encourage participants to report inappropriate behavior by clicking the flag icon on any card. Please note that this will send the card to a moderator for review but does not guarantee that it will be removed from the site.

GETTING HELP

My2024 recognizes the potential for topics, ideas, submissions and other content to possibly distress or trigger suicidal feelings among some participants. At any point of the game, we ask you to contact one of the following resources for free and confidential help and support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week:
