Just as there are many instances and iterations of lake monsters, sasquatches, and being watched by figures just beyond the field of your vision, so too are there many nodes in the #luminute network. Cryptids.online is proud to announce that we now bear our very own mark of the beast. Please welcome, follow, and fear @vaulture.
(We also recommend exploring the #luminute tag to explore the other accounts in the network. All very well done.)

Like Heinlein's _The Moon is a Harsh Mistress_, but instead of a prison labor camp it's a bunch of hotels. The hotel workers revolt and hold the extremely wealthy guests hostage until they get recognition as an independent nation.
I'll be honest though, it's not like I interact enormously with the local timeline, but I do browse it. It's here, so I should use it, right? I've found some good people this way.
The first transgender suicide hotline in the US.
For the first time, there is a hotline in the US that is staffed entirely by transgender people,to serve transgender people.
Everyone in the Trans community needs to be spreading this around. Lives could be saved.

A horse with no legs
I am a horse with no legs
I've been rolling around town since I was a small horse
Wobblin' and hobblin' and getting stared at by tourists
And I am here to stay until God calls me one day to to go in the sky and I die
But till then I will roll and play and do the best I can
I know they sometimes laugh at me
It makes my mom cry but
I am not afraid of shame
I am cool with what I am
The other horses might be tall
And have super big legs
But unlike some of them
I am free and that is more important to me
I didn't expect to live this long
And I know it could still end at any moment
Everytime I think about it it scares me but just a little bit
Cause realistically there's a bunch of things that could have happened to me
And it's pretty cool to be alive at all
And I'll do the best I can to reach my goals but I don't get too
Anxious about it I try to stay calm and
Remember that a horse like me
Is still a fine thing to be.
