ok listen it’s really nifty that “say your name and pronouns” is getting to be a thing in queer spaces but. lets talk about the etiquette for that if u are cis because i think maybe we should lay it bare, just so we’re all on the same page.
inappropriate things to say when asked for your pronouns
- "i don’t care about pronouns/you can call me whatever"*
- "call me whatever you think i am"
- [pronoun joke]
- "i’m a guy/lady"
- [anything about being cis]
appropriate things to say when asked for your pronouns
*trans+ folks with no pronoun preference exist and u are beautiful twinkling diamonds shine on, friend, shine on
Also important: give people an out. Some people might not necessarily ready or comfortable to participate in what can be ‘outing’ to a whole group.
Just do as best possible to give them a heads up beforehand, that going ‘to the bathroom’ or needing to leave for any reason is fine before everyone has sat down etc.
500 students having the night of our lives. But it’s also a chance for us to say to schools “Hey, you need to do more to support us; you need to challenge transphobia and homophobia.”
Until the day where every school steps up and makes their events safe for everyone, we’ll run the Formal!
Check out the pics from today’s Speed Friendship where 40+ young people came along to meet new people and make new friends!

And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise. (x)
