Looking for a speaker/charity that does intro to LGBTQIA+ talks, focused on trans rights. Got moolah. Does anyone have suggestions?

I'm pleased to note that even dolphin.town, my Mastodon server where the only letter you are allowed to post is "e", has seen increased activity in the last few days.

Thanks Eeeeelon!

Under-rated feature on Masto:

The "Delete & re-draft" button

It does exactly what's on the label

It deletes your post, but puts it back in the editor so you can fix that *one* thing easily

I feel kinda guilty being at a job that I like but others had a really bad experience there 😭​
