I'd gone in 2017 but not 2018, then went in 2019 and felt pretty uncomfortable as a half Indian man. After being so used to diverse and inclusive spaces it was incredibly jarring, so I'm sorry for how worse it would've been for you!

Happy #PronounsDay! My pronouns are he/him/his, and you can read them programmatically on my website (using #Microformats), as described in https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/04/10/pronouns-microformats/

It's super important to make them visible so folks everywhere are more comfortable sharing their pronouns

As with 'You Guys', this is another great view into why using inclusive phrases are incredibly important.

This is another post you really need to read, if you haven't already, as it makes you really think about the way you communicate.

I know a lot of people who use the term 'you guys' as a gender-neutral term, but after reading this article it really helps persuade you that the term is actually not as inclusive as you think.

For a couple of years now I've been making an effort to use gender-neutral ways to address groups, and I hope after reading this you will too.

Great post by Luke about how we should be more inclusive in events and whether alcohol-oriented is the nicest message for those wanting to get involved.
