Whether you're a young MAP who's just learning about your sexuality or an experienced MAP-rights advocate, we're glad to have you in our community! We provide a safe, supportive environment for MAPs and allies by prioritising privacy, staff transparency, and democracy.
We are inclusive of MAPs who hold a variety of beliefs on sensitive topics and may need a place to discuss or receive support. We understand that it's not our place to judge you for your thoughts.
OMC members with the MAP or Non-MAP role also have the option to make a blog on MAP Blogs, a blogging site maintained by OMC.
