I want to make sure this is clear to all. ubuntu.buzz is open to having people join our instance. The creator and admin of our instance is me, Ikora. I'm a black femme, but you don't have to be to join us. We are creating a community space based on restorative justice principles. So, yes, everyone is welcome! But, it's in context, right? Unearned advantages will be addressed and acknowledged. We won't be gaslighting each other. Listen to experience, etc. Join me if you want to help. <3

@ikora "My chosen name is Ikora; based on an imaginary, but magical woman that helped me feel more real."

Ikora from Destiny, right? :D

@virtualwolf Yes. Ikora from Destiny. <3 That game was a great place for me to be. Ikora inspired me. I loved her and felt so strong and safe. So, I've chosen that as my new name. As a child of the middle passage, my original "family name" whatever that is would have been stripped from me and knowledge of my culture has been stripped from me. So... I just chose a new first name/last name. And it's Ikora. <3
