What reason was given for your ban?

Adult solicitation (absolutely untrue).

I’m an artist and a woman lol. But also people reporting, and Instagram’s poor algorithm.

Were you able to appeal and what was the response?

Yes, for a while they wouldn’t reverse their flag but recently they have been. I’ve had to go through very sketchy means to get my account back. See here for more.

What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?

Loss of income, anxiety, watering down my artistic expression.

What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?

We’re all affected by censorship issues.
