This is my last message as an admin of vulpine.club.
It began as a weekend project, something cool to play with, to fill up time between jobs.
Then others showed up. And we became friends. And we became a community.
We built a decidedly queer space, atop radical acceptance and boundaries and consent and respect and love.
What started as a novelty became a safe space, a judgement-free place for self-exploration, for myself and for so many others.
This was the first community where I was Rey, 100% of the time. This was the first community where I've felt *normal* for being into the things I'm into, for loving folks like I do, for being _me_.
But at some point, it began to feel like v.c was usurping my identity. Being "Rey, the Vulpine Club admin" became awkward and uncomfortable. This isn't who I *am*... I am so much more.
I've also struggled with the conflict between having responsibility for the safety of this community, and being in personal intimate relationships with a substantial part of it.
So, I figure it's time to turn in my badge and pun, and leave things in the paws of the best admins, mods, and friends I could leave y'all with: Sariya and Clara.
I love you all. You are such beautiful and amazing critters. Thank you for being here with me <3
P.S. I'll still be around, you betcha
