Well, it's about a year late to be posting this, but I'm transgender (and many other labels, which I have elided). In late 2019, I had a hell of a long weekend where I reconsidered a bunch of dusty memories I had forgotten about or repressed. I also rewrote the website while contemplating this. At the time, though, I was not very confident in how I wanted to present myself in general. This has changed, which is why I am writing this post.

My pronouns are she/her or they/them, and I prefer my name to be styled in lowercase.

If you're having similar experiences, I know how isolating and scary it can be initially. Feel free to contact me if you want someone to talk to. I'll do my best to help or just to be a friend.

I've also rewritten the website, for its third iteration, and moved domains to jade.fyi to better align it with who I am. This time the blog is in Zola, a static site generator written in Rust. If you want source code for this site, it's here.

I consider accessibility to be a core feature. If you have any trouble using the site, please email me or file an issue.

N.B.: rewriting the website is not "cute", jades only rewrite their website while in extreme distress.
