Afilias has promised to donate a slice of .lgbt registration fees to a LGBT organization for the next few months.

The company, which acts as registry for .lgbt, said it will give $20 to the It Gets Better Project for every name registered through October 11.

It Gets Better is a US-based non-profit devoted to supporting LGBT people through their often rough teenage years.

Afilias said the promotion is meant to celebrate the recent legalization of same-sex marriage in the US and Ireland.

The October 11 end date was picked because that is National Coming Out Day in the US.

.lgbt names currently retail for roughly $45 to $60 a year.
