my first fediverse account was on identi.ca. after I had accounts on gnusocial, quitter, diaspora, friendica... but it wasn't until i discovered some weird mastodon instances that it won me over: witches.town and many queer/trans and nonbinary folk, some of them reflecting on entitlement, whitness, patriarchy, colonialism, neurodivergence, accessibility, all that suddenly created a sense of 'these are my kind of people' in contrast to fragmented tekbroz posts...
I've put in some work, started my own instance(s), followed, unfollowed, moderated, failed and kept going.
no space or person or project is perfect, but I'm grateful to each and everyone who left kind words of appreciation, who made an effort to respond, helped, criticised with civility, sent hugs, to me or anyone in the world!
all we need is love (and intelligence. and revolution, and some fun).
peace, and happy birthday, fediverse.
SoNoMu (Sound Noise Music) is a mastodon instance for musicians, sound-artists, producers of any kind of aural noise, songwriters, bedroom producers, sonic manglers and algorave livecoders. -> more...
