Transparency is contagious. :) Thank YOU for having the bravery to share your experience and perspective.

The loneliness is deep from all angles. Then you have people telling you, literally, that you're being too hard on the organizers of an event that they already screwed up with in terms of their model.

It's so easy to see why we face so many problems existing in tech. Everyone wants to think the hardest shit is applying and coming up with the money. The struggle is being able to exist and have your experience be considered valid.

Hugs! Be sure to hit me up on Twitter, I never shut up about mental illness and standing up for marginalized groups. ❤️
