CODE OF CONDUCT
Lambda Lounge Chattanooga is dedicated to providing a respectful, harassment-free community for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment or bullying of any community member in any form.
Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other attendees. Behave professionally. Remember that harassment and sexist, racist, or exclusionary jokes are not appropriate for Lambda Lounge Chattanooga forums or events. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any event venue, including talks. Participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled.
Harassment includes offensive verbal/electronic comments related to personal characteristics or choices, sexual images or comments in public or online spaces, deliberate intimidation, bullying, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks, mailing lists, IRC chats, electronic meetings, physical meetings or other events, inappropriate physical contact, or unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing or bullying behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, representatives of the community may take reasonable action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender, expulsion from any Lambda Lounge Chattanooga event, or expulsion from mailing lists, IRC chats, discussion boards and other electronic communications channels to resolve the issue.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please act to intercede or ask for help from any leader of the Lambda Lounge Chattanooga community, mailing list administrator, IRC chat admins, website admins, or organizers of any physical events of Lambda Lounge Chattanooga.
Lambda Lounge Chattanooga leaders will be happy to help participants contact local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
We expect participants to follow these rules at all venues and related social events.
