Not live just yet. Kinda difficult to do things with the netbook balanced on the knee at the airport. :)

How about pinkfestchicago.com?

Okay, so I told my spouse how we snagged pinkfest.lgbt, and the tale of
pinkfest.com. She said it was understandable how almost any .com that
began with pink would be "sat upon." After all, pink is for breast
cancer. She then suggested that we use something that others probably
haven't thought of, like pinkfestchicago.com. That way, like
divalasvegas, people would also know the city.

I assume we can have more than one and redirect.

It's alive!

Surf here:

http://pinkfest.lgbt

Initial tests are fine. Please give it the once-over and please report any issues.

Yes, if some sugar-mommy can conjure up the $$$$$ for it, yes, it's possible.

The .com TLD is most definitely the highest on the pecking order. That's the good news.

It's also quite a bit longer than the "naked" pinkfest. Some will say that brevity trumps TLD, some will say it does not, and "it depends" is also a thought here. (Reading the gazillion of "domain name best practices" pages out there will be left as an exercise for the studii.) :)

It can be a redirect, or it can be a simple alias, which is easier to set up on the server.

One thing for any potential sugar-mommies to think of is that a domain name is the gift that keeps on giving, as in to the domain registrar! Once a domain is live and points to a viewable page, people are gonna bookmark it and other sites will (hopefully) link to it. Should that domain expire (as in nonpayment) the site attached to it goes dark and all bookmarks and links to it break, which is most definitely a Very Bad Thing (tm).

I also grabbed pinkfest.net and a couple of others for reserve for the minimum term. I'm thinking of such cases as rating services and firewall administrators who might downgrade or block .lgbt domains. I'm not going to deploy them, however, until I'm sure we want to use them and keep them, for the reason cited above.

Transition almost flawless, there are some inter/intra-page links, like
"return to Pinkfest Home" that don't work.

I forgot about the domain "renewals." Maintaining a web presence isn't
cheap.
