Twitter Suspends Lesbian Dating App HER on Lesbian Day of Visibility

For standing in solidarity with trans lesbians, and denouncing TERFs.

UPDATE (April 27, 2023): The app’s Twitter account was temporarily suspended and has been reinstated.


On Lesbian Day of Visibility, lesbian dating app HER is suspended from Twitter.

In its day of visibility statement, HER proudly shared: “As a brand, we’re here to take back the term ‘lesbian’ from the clutches of TERFs and bigots who’ve tried to weaponize the word to fuel their transphobia and hatred.⁠” The term TERFS refers to “trans-exclusionary radical feminists,” who have convoluted the term feminism, to support their bullshit.

Where some would assume the celebration of trans and cis lesbians would be a cause for joy, Twitter seemingly took offense, suspending the dating app’s account — on the same day it should’ve been celebrated. The HER dating app has been the leading lesbian dating app for almost a decade and set a new standard for inclusivity within the industry. The app also regularly provides resources for lesbians of all demographics.

Twitter, once a home for debates and contrasting opinions, has now evolved into an unsafe space for the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as other marginalized groups. For example, Twitter recently quietly removed a policy against deadnaming transgender users last week. The news foreshadows an unsafer Twitter under Musks’s reign and further empowers TERFS.
