Lex is a lo-fi, text-based social app for womxn, trans, genderqueer, intersex, two spirit, and non-binary ppl for meeting lovers and friends.

Inspired by old school newspaper personal ads, Lex (formerly known as Personals) lived on Instagram for years before evolving into an app. (you can still find us on Instagram @lex.app)

Lex—short for lexicon—is the first dating and social app where the text comes first, and the selfies come second.

Lex is independent, queer owned and operated. We’re proud to give our community a private and secure space to meet a friendly and diverse community. We’re dedicated to protecting our members’ data and improving user experience, so you’ll never see banner ads on Lex and we won’t sell your data to 3rd party companies.

— Read personal ads and chat with queers in your neighborhood or around the world
— Use search and filter functions to find exactly who you’re looking for
— Post, edit, and delete your ads 24/7
— Build a profile, link your Instagram account (or not)
— Chat cuties with in-app messaging!
— Only you see who likes your personals, no public like tallies
— Ability to report offensive ads and profiles
— Block function
— No swipes, no selfies!
— Lo-fi, low-key, gentle, sexy

With Lex app you’ll be able to filter personals and missed connections by location (from your neighborhood to The World), age, and added search function (search key words like: femme, top, pizza). Make a profile—create a username, write in your pronouns, and link your Instagram (or not). Talk to babes via in-app messaging! Only you see who likes you—there are no publicly visible like tallies. You can report personals and users and they will immediately be blocked (admin will monitor the reports as well).

Lex adheres to a zero tolerance policy towards creeps: no transphobia, no racism, no fatphobia, no ableism. No hate speech of any kind. We reserve the right to delete personals or missed connections for any reason. A healthy, loving community is our top priority.

Lex is community moderated, admin reviews all reported content within 48 hours.

Safe and Welcoming — Comment/thread Feature please!

This is the first queer social/dating app ive ever felt comfortable using !! I adore the idea of missed connections and texted based posts for this community. I also love the ability to link instagrams and edit pronouns however we want (she/they for me).

My one suggestion would be to enable a comment or thread feature. I think this would be particularly helpful for when someone posts a question asking for help in terms of coming out or safe bars etc. This way many different people can answer and others can see the responses and learn the information for themselves.

For example, someone just posted about National Coming Out day and how we can support each other. This post would be even more powerful if people could read each others responses and interact, forming an even closer community.

Thank you for this app and for considering improvements !!

Amazing but needs updates

I love this app. I love that people post everything from iso sex to I’m bored let’s chat gaming. I love that it’s queer focused and the age range and visibility range are massive. (I also love the teal coloring it pops beautifully.)

The vision of this app is gold. It does need some serious updating though. For one thing, the notification badges don’t show up for me (they are enabled in my phone settings). The messaging is glitchy all-around with the view not updating properly after a messages is sent. I’ve also had issues with the app crashing.

The layout could also be more user friendly: switch the tab placement for people’s profiles and your message thread with them. This way swiping left will send you back to your inbox, which is more useful than goin into their profile every time.

Only app I have a desire to review because I really believe in the vision of this app. Lex, historically _personals_ on Instagram is the most inclusive, lesbian and qt-focused, app out there. It’s about more than dating and relationships: it’s about community. Also, the app is centered around ‘ads’ that are generally pure poetry. I hope the ads stay that high quality; I didn’t have an ad I wanted to post on the ig page yet, but still I’d scroll through and read. With this app, I’d definitely like to post an ad. My only want for this app is to have a log of messages I’ve sent.
