As a messaging app for different kinds of communities, Discord has many inclusive servers that promote friendly interactions, gaming, and other activities. Depending on your preferences, finding LGBT Discord servers is fairly easy.
I searched several LGBTQ+ Discord servers to find the ones with the best inclusive communities that allow people to hang out or game with other like-minded people.
In this article, I’ll help you find Discord servers that are LGBT-friendly and suit your needs.
Best Discord Servers for Members of the LGBTQ Community
LGBTQ+ Hangout is one of the largest LGBT servers on Discord. With over 90,000 members, this server is filled with organized events and fun channels. Depending on your equipped roles, you can access exclusive channels and talk to other members in that channel. There are also general channels for advice, debates about politics and other controversial subjects, and for LGBT members who are questioning or are closeted.
Unlike LGBTQ+ Hangout and other LGBT discord servers, Spectrum is highly exclusive to LGBTQ+ identifying people only. This means that if you’re straight, you can’t join and be a member of the Discord server. When you try to join their server, this is done through an application process. The SpectrumMod bot will message you with some questions. After filling them up, you need to wait a couple more hours until a moderator approves your application.
Nevertheless, it’s a server filled with amazing people. Many of its features show it is a safe space for its members. For example, no Not Safe For Work (NSFW) channel or content exists. It also requires the use of trigger warnings on topics that can be triggering, such as violence, slurs, discrimination, abuse, and more.
You will need to reach certain levels to access voice channels, the #discussion channel, and other channels. However, you can still access channels devoted to events, giveaways, general chats, and interest chats. If you want to show support to the server, you can also purchase merchandise from them.
LGBTQ+ Lounge is a greatly welcoming server. Joining is simple, fast, and easy. When you join, you’ll immediately notice how resourceful the server is; it shares health resources and guides for LGBTQ+, supporters, and affiliates. It’s also filled with fun events for karaoke, the question of the week, and writing, art, and photography events.
The LGBTQ+ Community
The LGBTQ+ Community Discord server is slightly exclusive as you need to reach certain levels to access some channels or roles or to send images, links, and gifs. This server is fun as it hosts many events, such as XP boost events, trivia nights, art events, and more.
You can also join voice chats with server members and freely talk about anything except those prohibited by server rules. Additionally, it’s important to note they do not have advice or a venting channel since the server staff and members believe that Discord is not a replacement for therapy. They truly have a holistic approach to welcoming members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Best Discord servers for LGBT gamers and specific interests
Divine sister LGBTQ+
The Divine Sister LGBTQ+ server is where the biggest LGBTQ+ community of Roblox gathers. Valindra owns the Divine Sister group. They developed the game De Pride Isle Sanatorium and Les Beyond East, which are fun Roblox roleplay games promoting welcoming LGBTQ members and allies.
The server largely centers around the theme of divination and updates within the Roblox group, such as events and other activities. The Discord server also has a Market District where LGBT members showcase their skills and talents to earn Robux or other payment methods.
If you love to play Minecraft, you’ll also love joining Monjii’s Den. It is the Discord community server of FruitySMP, the largest LGBTQ+ Minecraft server. It has art contests and exclusive updates about FruitySMP.
LGBTQ+ Pop Vinyl & Music
If you love music, you’ll love the LGBTQ+ Pop Vinyl & Music Discord server. Being a member in this small server allows you to be updated about new vinyl releases or restocks of vinyl records by your favorite artists.
Apart from that, new people can talk with older members about upcoming releases, charts, artist current events, and everything about music. This server also hosts fun events such as streaming parties to play music by old or new artists, weekly themed albums and vinyls, playing Guess The Music, and many more events.
Best Discord Servers That Include LGBTQ Allies
LGBT+ Teen chat
If you’re aged between 13 and 19, you can join LGBT+ Teen Chat. Because it’s for teens, it has a more safe and teen-friendly community. One of its amazing features is the #void-venting channel. Here, server owners allow members who have bottled up emotions freely post their feelings, thoughts, and ideas and then delete them.
Many members found this therapeutic and used it to just release and let go of their negative emotions and thoughts. Additionally, because the server members are mostly still in school, there’s a homework help channel where members can help each other provide and explain answers, share resources, and more.
gay & comfy
Gay & Comfy is a general Discord server promoting diversity, anime, and friendly interactions. It hosts art showcases, games, events, and other activities.
LGBT-Rex is a general social Discord server open to LGBTQ+ members and allies. One of its coolest features is how diverse it is. It has casual chat channels for people who can speak in English and separate text channels for people who want to chat in Dutch, Spanish, German, or French. Its voice channels are also very open; you do not need to reach a certain level to access them.
