I wrote a tweetstorm over on the ol' birdsite about my early days on Twitter, and my early days on Mastodon, and how this place is giving me hope. I think it'll be interesting to some of you.

"...Black queer and queer of color activism are predicated on shattering the myth not only of queer unhappiness, that we miss what we refuse, but the myth that queer happiness comes from increasing proximity to whiteness as well as to straight culture.

Shattering; it is what we do.

When we are assumed as shattered, we can shatter.

This blog is written out of love and affection for all our beautiful fragile queers."

Hi! I'm new here. I'm the Community Collections Archivist at Virginia Tech. I'm also a bit of a speculative fiction geek. I played Rifts and Warhammer 40k as a kid. Today, I'm more into D&D 5E but wouldn't say no to a game of Rifts. Also ❤️ Critical Role. 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈 #gaymer

@jplebreton @darius honestly rather than seamless account migration i'd be much more interested in seeing Masto acknowledge that people have multiple identities, that they can exist in different communities at once, that one's identity is manifold and always in flux, rather than singular and immutable.

it features absolutely no tracking or ad systems whatsoever

if you want to donate: is open source now. Apparently it's made in Ruby.

Anyone want to investigate adding support?

Sometimes I'll send a helpful post at someone new in the timeline whose politics are at odds with mine because I still want them to have a good experience and find an instance they can call home.
