:lgbt_io: I will upgrade our instance to v3.0.0 or latest this coming Sunday (it can happen at any time).

Kindly expect some downtime on that day. Thank you. :)

Why do people only listen to story from one side and decided that THAT IS the true story?

I never did an that I can remember so here we go

Hello! I'm a trans lesbian who enjoys reading, blogging, board games, and tinkering with interesting tech things. I mostly toot about Gender Stuff but every now and then I branch out into some of my other interests. I live in upstate New York with my wife and two cats.

Mastodon in general and this server specifically have been really welcoming and great, and I'm glad to be part of the community.

:lgbt_io:​ Thanks all for boosting. <3 I've received a reply from the chatroom owner explaining that linking the chatroom to our site was just meant to be a recommendation rather than association, and it appears that the trolls have been banned from the Riot.im chatroom. :)

:lgbt_io: It was brought to my attention that there's a Matrix/Riot.im LGBT chatroom (filled with homophobic messages) has linked itself to our website lgbt.io.

A Masto user and myself have contacted the owner of the chatroom (appeared to be "thekyriarchy") but no response so far.

I'm not entirely sure if this is a pure mistake or a troll to our site.

So, can you all kindly help boosting this toot and hopefully some people might come forward with more info or ways to contact the chatroom owner?

Thank you very much!

Hey there! I’m Dirk and new to this instance. I noticed some other people are doing posts so I’ll do the same!

I’m bisexual and cisgender (he/him). I spent the last four years teaching radio and television classes at the small rural high school I attended when I was a kid. I resigned at the end of the school year and now I’m getting ready to go back to school to study graphic design.

I co-host a podcast called “OMG So Random Hehe!” and I love designing posters for concerts and other events in my spare time. I’m excited to be here and to get to know all of you! :heart_sparkles_bisexual:

Hello! I’m doing another casual survey, this time about identity journeys.

All trans and/or nonbinary people are invited to take part! If you’re not cis, please do take a look.

Thank you!

LGBT+, YouTube discrimination, lawsuit 

"According to the lawsuit, YouTube algorithms flag videos about LGBT+ issues as “shocking,” “inappropriate,” “offensive,” and “sexually explicit,” meaning that they are then demonetised, or made ineligible for paid advertising.

YouTube has also been accused of blocking LGBT+ creators from purchasing advertising on other videos, while allowing hate-filled videos to remain online and even advertise on LGBT+ channels."

"Celso Dulay and Chris Knight of Glitter Bomb TV[...] said that a Google employee told them that their video had been flagged for explicit content because it discussed “the gay thing.”"

"Chase Ross said that his videos are routinely demonetised or placed under a restricted filter because he is transgender."

"Bria Kam and Chrissy Chambers told a similar story. They said that after their videos began to be demonetised and restricted, their revenue has fallen from $3,500 to just $500 a month."

:lgbt_io: Announcement Regarding Twitter Crosspost on LGBT.io [15th Aug 2019]

Dear members of lgbt.io,

If you use Twitter Crosspost tool, you must set [Privacy for retweets when crossposted] to "Unlisted" (this means only to your followers).

For original tweets and quotes, as of this announcement, you're still permitted to post them to public timelines. But it is very likely that we will restrict further in the future.

Sorry for this restriction, but the purpose of doing so is to keep Mastodon as Mastodon.

Retweets crossposted on our home timeline starting from the time of this announcement will be removed.

Thank you. :heart_pride:

the gym is an mmo

If you leave a workplace, remember to revoke your Mastodon sessions from work.

They're fairly obvious on this screenshot - the Windows browsers with 2.* IP addresses.

It's in your settings, under "account".

Hey mastodon.social users, I've just updated something and I want you to pay attention to the quality of the account search/autocomplete. Please tell me your impressions after a while.

I suppose I should do an , shouldn't I! Hi y'all, I'm Violet, I'm a 22-year-old trans lesbian from the US. I read a bunch (I'm a librarian!) and I code and write a little bit too. I'm also trying to do more embroidery because it's cute as heck 😊 I'm excited to hang out around here and meet people!

#FreeRadical users: I just suspended the
freefedifollowers.ga instance for spam. I’ll add it to the usual docs later.

I'm Kim. I'm a trans woman. I'm mostly lesbian but with some flexibility, which is why I use the word queer.

I'm submissive but not really into bondage or pain, my kinks are feet, piss, humiliation and roleplay. I'm polyamorous.

I love science fiction and fantasy. I'm a big Doctor Who fan. I like all types of music but mostly heavy metal and electronic dance music.

I'm pagan, not heavily into magic or ritual though. My eclectic altar has mostly Greek and Hindu deities on it, with one or two Celtic or Egyptian gods too. I love nature and that is where I find the deepest connection with the divine.
