MISSION STATEMENT
mi·nor·i·ty (m-nôr-t, -nr-, m-)
n. pl. mi·nor·i·ties

3. Law. The state or period of being under legal age: still in her minority.

we're blacks, hispanics, asians, middle easterns, native americans, gays, lesbians, transgendered, women, you name it- ethnic and social minorities, involved in whatever music scene (punk, hardcore, indie, emo, ska, rockabilly, grind, crust, experimental, the list continues forever). we may or may not get shit for it, but one thing is for sure: we're proud of who we are and what we do, and we want the bias out of our scenes.

here, we can come together and discuss anything- your shows, music, personal experiences, pictures, anything and everything. of course, this community is based solely on the ideas of unity/respect/acceptance, so you don't have to be a 'minority' to join.

RULES
- an open mind is mandatory.
- use a livejournal cut when posting long text/pictures.
- NO DRAMA.
- respect.
- please don't promote your lame _OMGZIMSOHOTWTFLOLZ communities. we honestly don't care.
- have a grand ol' time.

so just join, post an introduction, and have fun.
