EDIT: I have found housing until March. I also think I have a job. So I should be okay! The below is kept for historical reasons.
I'm an autistic trans femme at risk of becoming homeless.
Anyone in #Seattle willing to take in a #roommate? I just got dumped so I don't have anywhere to go after February. I do have a (meagre) $1000/mo disability income, and I probably have a job lined up.
Alternatively, anyone know where I can live for < $1000 a month? Doesn't have to be the Ritz, just a roof.
EDIT: I am not moving back to Oklahoma under any circumstance. I do not want the state to do what they're doing in Texas, with the AG literally doxxing trans people.
If you can't help with being a roommate, you can help by financially contributing to my deposit fund. https://paypal.me/Elizafox or $TheRealElizafox (CashApp).
PLEASE BOOST I absolutely need help here

Ever wondered about the development in the board elections of @ThePSF over the past years?
Did you know that there are 3 types of PSF members who can vote? Fellows, Contributing or Managing, and Supporting?

Well this has come to a head. In order to protest AI image generators stealing artists work to train AI models, the artists are deliberately generating AI art based on the IP of corporations that are most sensitive to protecting it.
Who knew the first AI battles would be fought by artists?

Now I know it is the fediverse and get ready to reside on mastodon. This post introduces myself.
I write code to crunch numbers. I like #python and the community, and enjoy seeing through the abstraction to the making of the circuit. I hope more and more people code for engineering and science in #taiwan and around the world, and would like to invite you to check out the events we hold with #sciwork: https://sciwork.dev .
In the hope we don't lose the great #python community on twitter, I've created a list of interesting Python people to follow on Twitter and Mastodon.🧑🤝🧑
If you know of anyone I've missed, please comment. 🙏
