Congrats Meghan! You have been an awesome community member and we on the core team look forward to getting to know you more.

As for a questions:

Are there any transgender folks in code that inspired or helped give you the courage to come out?

 

Awww thanks Ben 😊 I really love dev.to and the community it has become!

Unfortunately no 😬 I didn't really know any prominent trans folks in code before coming out (though I have since realized there are actually quite a few of us :D). Most of my pre-coming out solace came from the Reddit communities I mentioned above, and what really motivated me was this over arching feeling that while the first time I came out was one of the most gut wrenching moments of my life, I've only been happier since 💜

Oh yes, definitely. Several prominent open source leaders doing amazing things for code and humanity.
