On this day in 1985, London Pride was led by miners in solidarity with LGSM (Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners), something that was depicted in the movie Pride and is well documented to have led to many gay rights in the UK

That was also my first ever pride. In a sling, as a baby, I marched alongside the miners and the queers.

Today, exactly 37 years later, I helped to lead and organise a trans rights protest outside Downing Street in London.

Solidarity forever.

asking trans people "if gender isn't real, why do you want to be the other gender so bad" is like asking people "if rent shouldn't exist, why do you want rent control so badly": because we live in a society that violently enforces gender, and that makes it real. asking trans people, and only them, to pretend like gender doesn't matter, while everyone around us keeps hurting us for it, isn't fair. it's like asking tenants to not give a shit about rent while their landlord is trying to evict them.

Probably the craziest picture I’ve ever taken. This was after a weird storm on a summer evening, and I sped up the road to a Schnucks parking lot to get this rainbow. I don’t think I’ll ever top this.

I'm currently researching feminist hacker groups around the world for an episode for the podcast of the german hacker group @haecksenC. First research has proven a little difficult, so maybe you people on mastodon could help me out: Do you know feminist hacker groups in non german speaking countries? Do you know someone who does? please boost! :boost_ok:

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! 🔊

This is the new back-up account for @gendercensus@lgbt.io, since #LGBTio is going through some technical issues.

At the moment, posts and even account redirects aren't federating from #LGBT.io at all, so it would help a lot if anyone would be willing to boost this, especially if you have a lot of #LGBTQ+ and #nonbinary followers.

Thank you! :nonbinary_flag:

Cis women, we do realize that terfs are misogynistic toward us too and not just trans women, right? That's not to discount that their primary targets and scapegoats who they directly harm the most are our trans sisters and trans siblings of other (or no) genders. It's to say that transmisogyny and anti-trans bigotry are harmful to all of us, and when cis people oppose this hatred we don't do it as a matter of virtue or for the sake of our trans loved ones; we do it in our own self-interest too. Solidarity is not a favor.

Dieses Gender-Gaga ist mir echt zu blöd. Ich weiß ja nicht, wie ihr das macht, aber ich habe keine Lust, mich jetzt extra umzugewöhnen. Ich werde auch weiterhin "Kanzerlin" sagen. #Scholz #Amtseinführung #Vereidigung

Wow, I struggled for quite a while with today's second puzzle, but I'm extremely happy with the few lines of I managed to solve it with. Not sure if I'm gonna be able to keep up with the pace though...

remember: its only real communism if everything you do is ideologically pure from stem to stern. helping people survive under capitalism is bourgeois liberal bullshit. hope this helps.

There have been reports of a thesaurus leak, and I’m worried, bothered, concerned, apprehensive, fraught, fretful and nervous about it. You never know when it may strike. Or transpire. Be vigilant. And wary.

UI Pet Peeve: Don't use flags of countries for language selection.

It doesn't work for English (Union Jack? Star-Spangled Banner?), forces Austrians to click on the flag of a neighbor country, and lets large parts of Africa only choose the flag of a former colonizer.
