The extension is dedicated to the Sites GLS (Gays, Lesbians and Supporters)
and Sites Legally Gays (SLG), which in Portuguese means "Sites GLS (Gays, Lésbicas e Simpatizantes)
e Sites Legalmente Gays(SLG ).

In Brazil it is more common to use the acronym GLS than LGBT.

Although the acronym GLS is market-driven and trade, and the LGBT acronym is focused on political and social issues.
Built in the 90s, GLS acronym has become a benchmark among the LGBT community to identify local, products,
services and brands. While the LGBT acronym is used by non-governmental organizations and the struggle for equality.

the .lgbt areas are costing in Brazil averaged $ 45.

The domains are free and can be registered by the site: or
