    First Ever Online Poker Room for GLBT – Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Community Opens
    New Poker Game Launched For GLBT – No Straights

    ComeOutPoker.com, the world’s first online poker site catering exclusively to the Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender (GLBT) community, launched its real online poker room today. While some of the big- name poker sites may claim gay members, ComeOutPoker.com makes sure they stay true to their claim of being the first site that exclusively caters to the GLBT community. This includes raising the community aspect of the site above and beyond that found at traditional online poker sites, as well as offering the first ever gay poker game, known simply as ComeOut Hold’em.

    Online Poker for Gay Lesbian Community Opens: ComeOutPoker
    Netherlands Antilles, September 12, 2006 — ComeOutPoker.com, the world’s first online poker site catering exclusively to the Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender (GLBT) community, launched its real online poker room today.
    Recent surveys report that the poker boom is still experiencing record growth. An estimated one-in- five or 18% of American adults have reported playing poker during 2005. Considering that there are an estimated 200 million American adults, that means an estimated 36 million adults played poker during 2005. By contrast, it is estimated that 1 in 10 American adults is gay. That means there is close to 3.6 million gay poker players in the U.S. alone.


    “ComeOutPoker is proud to be the first online poker site to provide the GLBT Community a real poker room,” said ComeOutPoker.com spokesman Marc Willis. “Poker has long been a way for people to come together in a community-like atmosphere to meet, play, and have fun. The GLBT community is long overdue to enjoy the same excitement and fellowship that has been readily available to the straight community for years.”

    While some of the big-name poker sites may claim gay members, ComeOutPoker.com makes sure they stay true to their claim of being the first site that exclusively caters to the GLBT community. This includes raising the community aspect of the site above and beyond that found at traditional online poker sites.

    New Poker Game Launched For GLBT – No Straights
    It goes even farther by offering poker games with a fun twist. For example, ComeOutPoker.com offers a place for its members to enter a detailed profile as well as a photo. While playing poker, ComeOutPoker members can chat real-time amongst themselves, and for as long as they are logged in.
    ComeOutPoker also boasts the first ever gay poker game, known simply as ComeOut Hold’em. The game is played along the same guidelines as Texas Hold’em, but all straights are eliminated from the ranking of the hands. ComeOut Hold’em is available in all sit and go, tournament, and heads-up games.

    Willis summarized by saying, “ComeOutPoker is trying to appeal to poker players in the GLTB community as the #1 site for them to play, as well as bring the fun and excitement of online poker to the GLBT community as a whole. We have a number of VERY exciting promos in the pipeline, so be sure to come back often to check out ComeOutPoker.com!”
