Hi people!

I am doing a PhD in Physics.

I am here on Mastodoc (I'll let that typo be, given the audience) because it is at the intersection of my top two interests: academia and free software.

Reading about Mastodon and its history, I learned about the role queer people have played in its development.

I don't identify as queer, but a queer ally. Please suggest some reading on how I could be an ally to the community.

Mind blown when I found that I can also $$\LaTeX$$ on Mastodon!

$-\frac{\hbar^2}{2m} \nabla^2\psi + V\psi = E\psi \tag{1}$

Why are people still on twitter?! 😇
