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 is my personal email address, and 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!
