This is Alan. Alan ended his own life on 7th June 1954. He laced an apple with cyanide and ate a bite from it. He did this because the British government chemically castrated, humiliated and prosecuted him for being gay.

Alan is the reason why a chunk is bitten out of the Apple logo…in honour of Alan Turing.

Ok so what did he do? He invented computer science and using his first designs he decrypted the Enigma code - the machine base encryption that the Nazis and the German military used to communicate secret commands to each other in world war 2 - and hence he both saved millions of lives and brought us into the modern age of computing.

Pride month isn’t just about dancing on floats in gold hot pants or flying a rainbow flag. It’s about remembering that everyone has a right to be happy, love who they want to love, and recognise the outstanding contribution that everyone can make in a society free of fear or prejudice.

Remembering Alan……

Russia continues to deploy far-right ultranationalism in service of subjugating Ukraine, and in service of supporting neo-Nazi and extreme right-wing nationalist movements throughout Europe aimed at destabilizing and overthrowing democracy. 1/2

Hey Leute, ich brauche eure Hilfe!

Ein Spital in Kharkiv benötigt dringend Equipment. Denen sterben zusehends die Leute weg, weil Geräte fehlen. Wer kennt Spitäler in der Schweiz die ausmisten? (Modernisierung/Schliessung/Umbau usw.)

Den Transport 🇨🇭>🇺🇦 kann ich organisieren.

If you ask an autist, ADHD’er or AuDHD’er to do something - e.g. clean, send an email, help you with a task - at an *unspecified* point in the future, the chances are we will forget. Our brains are detail-oriented, and prone to discarding data if *any* key information is missing.

Every time someone says “who’s idea was it to make the weekend only two days” I think of this. We wouldn’t even have *two* days had working class people and trade unions not organised and fought for us. It wasn’t inevitable. It was fought for. Support the strikes!
