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

I have to say though, I'm really impressed that Mastodon didn't adopt Fleets/Stories.
They could have, but clearly saw something that even Twitter didn't. I'm not quite sure what that was, but I think all mastodon users owe Gargron a thank you for sticking to his vision and not just adopting the latest "hip" feature!
And even then, you can look at the proliferation of TikTok videos on Instagram Reels as another issue.
You can have everything right, but first-mover advantage isn't something you can always buy.

Wow, just noticed how many users joined https://pixelfed.social in the last 30 days.
It's not listed on the instance picker, I wonder where they heard about it.
Ordered a computer desk for my office!
Been working at the kitchen table for months and we have a few spare rooms so I figured its time.
I'm really excited to have my own space, my partner is an interior designer and will not let me hang up my Frank Ocean posters in the living room so this is a good compromise 😅
