30 years ago when we first joined Mastodon, I posted something about how it was beautiful for the first time to see a trans community, public facing and not under attack 24/7 to able to exist on this scale. I still feel the same way today, but i'd like to add that while it feels incredibly normalising, its worth remembering almost all of us are dealing with trauma, dysphoria, and trying to open up, some good, some unproductive ways.

So just go easy on each other.
We're all still learning.

become so completely and utterly myself that it can't be comprehended how I ever could have been anything or anyone else.

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive and Neighbors for More Neighbors. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
