-------------------------------------------- 1.The LGBT Socialist Party on DeviantART is designed for numerous variants of communistic thought from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community and Allies. Marxists and non-Marxists are welcome. Likewise, other leftists such as anarchists are welcome, and even those who are willing to learn of Communism are welcome. While the LGBT Socialist Party of DeviantART realizes that disagreements in ideological beliefs shall arise among members, we ask that debates be kept respectful and mature. Opposing beliefs (e.g. capitalists) must keep their questions and arguments respectful and mature as well.
2. The LGBT Socialist Party of deviantART has no official line of thought. This means that we are quite simply a party of Communists, whether members are Marxist-Leninist, Trotskyist, Maoist, Stalinist or anything else. Since the LGBT Socialist Party of DeviantART is an Internet based group, it is more important for us to engage in active discussion rather than Internet sectarianism. Of course debates among ideological lines will arise as mentioned, and these are welcome, but once again, please keep these debates with integrity.
3.Submissions to the gallery should contain quality, reflective of the fight for socialism , LGBT equality, and our political messages. And also, don't be shy from posting LGBT pride and related works just because there is a hammer and sickle in our group avatar. After all, this group in about how being Socialist and being Queer are not mutually exclusive to each other and those that are Queer and Socialist should feel free. We understand that not everyone is Van Gogh or Renoir, but if you are planning on submitting art to the Party, please use your best effort and your best judgment. All submissions are currently automatically approved -- this will change as the party gathers a certain threshold of membership numbers and Admins and a Central Committee can be formed - Art that is not specifically communist in nature, but includes subject matter that many communists agree with (e.g. anti-Zionism, anti-imperialism, Environmentalism) it can still be approved potentially as well.
All members are expected to respect and act according to these guidelines. Any disrespectful attitude towards these guidelines or other members, comrades or not, will result in a review by a member of the Central Committee, and possible expulsion.
