These Are My People

I said that in Twitter.

I was referring to the feeling I got when I arrived at Eroticon for the Sunday sessions. We are all unique in our own way – this is a given – but to be surrounded by people who are body/sex/gender/race/relationship (and all the other things) positive, was emotionally overwhelming at times.

I had already met Molly and Michael several times, so it was comforting for there to be two familiar faces. But I also got to put faces to pixels. Exposing40, Bee and Bee-Keeper, ClearEyedGirl etc. There were many others, and I so wish I could have been there for the social stuff to talk with you all more.

Highlights included seeing Bee get her brand (and her squeak). ILB’s session on keeping your blog going was great. As was Ruby’s on the call out culture.

The list of people there was no time to meet is long, and a little sad. Unless they were avoiding me. 😉

Silverdrop couldn’t come with me, as she is recovering from surgery, but we will both be there next year.

In the meantime, I have two new stickers for the lid of my laptop. I TOLD you I was a geek, Bee!

    Nice of you to go and represent her too. She will bet the benefit of what new tricks you have learned. Hope Silverdrop is feeling back to normal.

    It was lovely to meet you too.

    I’m never going to live that squeak down am I *laughs* and I’ve always known you were a geek, I’m so excited I managed to get my geekyness burnt into my flesh now 😉
