I've spent the past week getting to know myself better and doing some self care.
I am proud to come out as a gay man.
I never thought I'd have the courage to do this and I really want to thank the fediverse for helping me be comfortable with who I really am.
I love you guys ❤️ #pride
In case it wasn't clear:
I am anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-homophobia, and believe black lives matter. If you have a problem with that, smash that unfollow button.
"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."
- Noam Chomsky

FediFollows has been on the #Fediverse for one year! 🎉 🎂
A huge thank you to everyone who suggested accounts so far, and to the accounts themselves 👏
Hand-curated directories are often seen as old-fashioned, but I think they have a role in getting people started on new decentralised social media.
FediFollows currently has 2.3K followers across a wide range of instances, so even people who don't follow me are more likely to see these interesting accounts in their hashtag searches.
And we're back!
I might not be the best person to give advice on #activityPub development, but I do think experienced AP devs should be doing more to help mentor new projects and developers for the sake of the #fediverse.
I'll never forget the times that @Gargron boosted my early Pixelfed posts, but I feel like we're not in that era anymore.
Don't be afraid to ask for help, or be intimidated by follower counts.
We all started something from nothing, and the real ones don't let ego define them 😉
This song means a lot to me.
It helped me through a pretty difficult stage of my life and I still get emotional towards the end.
"It's going to be okay, I promise you."
Never give up.
