I had already been messaging non-binary people, so it didn’t change how I was using the app.
Email (Send & Receive) allow members to interact within Disabled Passions without giving out personal contact details.
I scrolled through hundreds of photos of Her users, liking photos of a chef, a dancer, a medical student, and dozens of pet owners posing with their fur-babies. In the week that I was hacking the app, Her announced a major change—an option to list your gender on your profile.
"When we first started Her we were creating an app with a very specific set of users and a very specific problem in mind–helping lesbian and bisexual women find a date.
In the five days I used Her, I talked to 11 users, interacted with a global and local community, and (drum roll here) actually landed a date.
So, while I don’t have any hacks for IRL coffee dates, I do feel a little better about my chances of going on them in the future.
