If you’ve been watching this site, you know that it has completely transformed in the last month or so. We opened up a place for you to submit your thoughts about gender and your descriptions of your identities, and all of a sudden, holycrap, there’s a community here. And a generous and supportive one, at that.
Personally, I’m humbled and thrilled. What’s happening is incredible, and I want to help keep moving this energy in the right direction.
But maybe you could tell me what you think that direction is. Here are some ideas in my head…
Opening up a forum for you to have free-form conversations with each other under whatever names and pseudonyms you want to go by.
Collecting these pictures and images into a book so the message can go beyond the internet and physically into people’s hands.
Creating a structure for volunteering so you can help curate content or be a resource for people with questions/needs.
Improving the site design and technology to give you better/clearer access to the things you care most about here.
Adding other kinds of content like video interviews, stories, featuring other bloggers, … (help me brainstorm here).
What else could we do? What do you think this site needs? What would serve you best? How would you want to contribute? Do you want to just keep it as is for now and see where it naturally evolves to?
