I'm Shubham. A soon to be 32 year old trans*, queer feminist from Delhi, India. I'm new to Mastodon and I haven't used Twitter very actively in the past. I was looking for a safe queer and feminist friendly instance to join and found Unfortunately I don't speak or read French, but I can always google translate. Looking forward to a great time ahead...

@shubhamboseroy Hello Shubham and welcome! I hope you'll like being here :).
And don't worry! Not only there is still plenty of people speaking English around here, but you can follow people who are on other instances.

@Sylvhem Haha Thank You! I'm already LOVING the interface design here.The colors are so warming and welcoming. And the little detailing of the various icons. It's like a jolly coven! :blob_heart_eyes:

@shubhamboseroy Thank you! That's what we were looking for ≧^◡^≦.

Welcome here !
I know nothing about trans communities in India :o
I'm more used to post in french but don't hesitate to ask if you want me to translate one of my posts.
And don't hesitate to ask if you have questions !

Hello! Thank you so much. Don't worry, I'll use auto translate first, and ask you help on specific words or phrases only haha! There's a lot to the complex dynamics of queer politics in India. November is also pride month in Delhi (and Bengaluru and Chennai). I'll post more updates in the subsequent days... 😀

@shubhamboseroy I think you will find a good home here. Mastodon has been such an important part of my queer community and my transition. Welcome!

Hello! Thank you so much! Looking forward to my time here! ❤

Some apps have machine translation built in btw, in case you find it cumbersome


Oh interesting, I'll look them up. Thanks! I'm currently selecting the text on chrome browser and using the translate option...

@shubhamboseroy Not queer here. But my experience here has been that I've felt like a guest in a queer space. Which rocks. Thanks everyone.

@shubhamboseroy Welcome on!
I hope you'll have a great time here =)

unsolicited advice about online translators 


Thank you so much! Looking forward to it. Yeah I have been checking out translator apps. Honestly I'm so in love with the colors of eldritch cafe's UI on the browser, I don't feel like going anywhere else as of yet... Haha 🙈


You're welcome!

Oh, that sounds lovely :)

I hope you have a nice stay there!

@shubhamboseroy Sediments is your work? I absolutely loved it. Incredible!


Hey... Ummm. I don't really have a preference. Formally people use they/them for me. 🙂
