Gamers that want to express their sexual orientation, religious belief, and race on Xbox Live will be able to do so thanks to a Gamertag update from Microsoft. According to Gamasutra:
Microsoft is making changes to its Xbox Live Code of Conduct to expand the kinds of Gamertags it allows — which means users can now have tags that indicate their sexual orientation, religion or race.
I love this move. It gives gamers more choices in how they can identify themselves to other players.
Are you guys going to reveal more information? Do you like that Microsoft has allowed this? Or are you all “don’t ask, don’t tell” when it comes to race, religion, and sexual orientation?

Haha, this will open the gates for some vile names I'm sure.
Hmm i agree with Smartguy, i can't wait to see how creative people will start getting with these names.
My friend said I should use "Str8AgnosticPinoy".
What names are brewing in your head?
I wonder how much of an increase we'll see in people being banned by moderators once this happens?
Don't ask don't tell because I don't want to hear you arguing about it. (which will always happen)
Hey, if they can help me get to level 50 on Horde mode, I don't care if they're gamer tag is "Luvs2Spooge"
Ya, overdue. Why we ask people to hide who they are in a free society is beyond me.
