Diana Ross' 1980 hit

Just for the record (because I’m telling everyone), I’m transgender! 🙂 I’m transitioning to live openly and honestly as myself, as a woman now. 🙂 (To my LGBTQ+🏳️‍🌈 friends, I’m simplifying for the cis 😉) My name is Amanda McCann, and for pronouns they/them is fine, but she/her is nice. Auf deutsch, meine Pronomen sind „sie“.

My old email addresses will still work, but amanda@technomancy.org is my personal email address, and amanda.mccann@osmfoundation.org for OSMF Board matters.

On github, I’m amandasaurus on github, Amᵃᵖanda on the OpenStreetMap Wiki, and @Amanda#2524 on Discord, am{ap}anda on IRC

Like always, I am open to good faith questions from OSMers on LGBTQ issues. If there’s a question you’ve always been afraid to ask, you can ask below as a comment, or email me. 🙂

Don’t forget one of the rules of OSM: Have Fun! 🏳️‍⚧️

While some people might think this doesn’t belong on the OSM diary system, I will point out that I’m a member of the OpenStreetMap Foundation Board of Directors. If I said nothing, then people might be confused about the name change. 😉

Thanks for the notice, I was actually a bit confused when some “unknown” user edited the wiki page of OSM Promotional Material Programme. I was looking for spammers. Well, all the best for you!
