The person of the day is Akwaeke Emezi, a published author

In the news, Soraya Santiago, the first openly trans person to run for office in Puerto Rico, has passed away.

In projects, the recommendation is going to be the new critical darling Hades. Released by Supergiant, you play as Zagreus, son of Hades, as he tries to escape from hell.

For optional topic: Body image has always been an issue in the community. How has it affected you?
