I left birdsite a year ago because it's moderation is terrible and drives away queer folk, women, people of color, etc. I honestly have no clue if the fediverse is better or if those problems here are just less talked-about.
Can someone recommend a queer-friendly instance led by women of color?
There's definitely a point to be made about representation in leadership roles, but hosting a Mastodon instance is still an incredibly niche thing. As others have said: there are black-led instances, queer-led instances, women-led instances, but perhaps not all 3 in the same person.
@benj_red @flugennock With that said: it's still possible for one to exist! Mastodon as a whole is far more queer than average, so "queer-friendly" is the majority of instances. I think the closest to what you initially asked for is computerfairi.es, which is run by a latina trans lesbian. playvicious.social is the most visibly black instance. Any randomly-selected admin is more likely trans than not. I'm just not sure there's any place keeping track of this info.
Crunch the numbers however you like, if people fitting that description are underrepresented (I'm still waiting to hear evidence they aren't) that's probably worth paying mind.
