A QUEER APP FOR ALL GENDERS IS COMING
The world's first community-driven, gender-inclusive queer app, known simply as "Q," is welcoming members on a Kickstarter campaign that has raised nearly $5,000.
The app's designer, Eric Cervini, decided to create Q while studying at Harvard last year. The campaign, Cervini says, is a response to the exclusion of many who identify as LGBT+ on today's queer apps.
"When we log on, we're constantly told to be a man, to have a perfect body, to act or to talk a certain way, to be someone other than who we truly are," Cervini said. "We deserve better."
Q, to be released to members only, allows users to choose from 20+ genders. Membership comes with access to the Q Forum, where users can suggest, review, and comment on new features, privacy measures, and community guidelines before they're made public.
