It's passed! Spain has now moved to self-ID for trans folk, lowered the age for changing your gender marker, AND a ban on conversion therapy 🎉

I appreciate that someone just called it for what it is. Hats off to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Oh I am *extremely* fed up of having Covid now.
Please please please keep wearing masks in all indoor public spaces if you possibly can, dear followers - and staying at home if you have anything infectious (again if you can).
