I'm Yost. Gender queer (They/Them) Christian (maybe more on the mystic side). I teach high school math during the day, seminary at night, board games and progressive church stuff on the weekend. Currently a member of the UMC church wondering what of it will still exist by the end of next month.

Anyone on here going to UM-Forward this weekend?

So apparently there are only 6 of us? I'm arriving a bit late to this conversation.

Been a rough week, but it was great shedding tears with a faithful community this morning.

This is your friendly reminder that not only did trans men, trans women, and nonbinary people exist and make contributions all the way back to ancient Sumer and recorded civilization -- but we also often had honored roles in temples and had poetry written about us.

Our modern world has forgotten a lot. Let's remember.

As a queer UMC member, this has been a super stressful week.

So this is kind of shocking to me. I was told about a religious mastodon instance today by one of my users. Being a very queer, polyam, trans non-binary person, I immediately was like "Oh shit, another instance I'm gonna have to block."

But after investigating, I'm seriously surprised. These folks are explicitly anti-racist, anti-transphobia, anti-homophobia, into social justice, etc.

So color me delighted and surprised! Welcome to the federation @mike and your instance!
