About this app

"The potential of an app like Lex to create a definitively queer social space feels expansive." — The New York Times

Lex is a free lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer social network where people meet and find friends, events, dates, and more. With millions of messages sent each month and people in over 200 countries, Lex is the top social app for local queer community.

Explore what’s happening with your local LGBTQ+ community— join a queer gnc trivia group, attend a trans tea party, find a gay-mer group. start a bisexual book club, or meet friends to go to the local lesbian bar with. There’s a thriving queer community all around you, and now you know where to find it.

Lex is built by queer people, for queer people. Lex is a free social and community app built to be an inclusive, equitable, and accessible space for members of the LGBTQ+ community. You can use Lex to make friends, chat with potential dates, and find local LGBTQ+ events near you.

Our features are free to use:

- Read and write posts from local queer community - ask questions, tell stories, find friends near you
- Write missed connections - reconnect with people you’ve already met
- Join or create a group - chat with local LGBTQ+ community around a shared interest, hobby, or activity
- Unlimited scrolling - read posts from queer people around the world
- Fill out your profile - add your photo, pronouns, and fill out prompts
- Search filters - find & meet other queer people to start the lesbian rock band of your dreams, bisexual brunch group, or transgender tattoo artist collective


"Lex is one of the first apps that seems to embrace the queer community’s complexity, not attempt to flatten it." — Vogue

"Lex is a truly vital platform that provides not just for queers looking for a partner, but friendship, community and love in all its diverse forms." — Refinery29

Love meeting other queers and met my ex on here, but please fix the bugs before adding cutesy new features! I'm one of the many people who mourn the move away from text-based personal-ad style posts to the inclusion of photos and the unattractive redesign. But all that would be fine if the app didn't consistently crash or take way too long to load (we're talking 30 seconds+). There is also no safeguard against accidentally submitting a post twice and posts are limited! Plus the bans...

used to be a great app. it's pretty rough now. the old layout was fantastic, simple to use, and clean. the new one is overly complex, there are too many colours, and loading takes ages. really wish the old UI was an option. this new one does not help with my sensory overload.

I have been trying to find an app to make friends on, and I was really excited when I found this app because the area I live is kinda conservative so making friends who won't judge you is difficult. My phone isn't activated, I prefer saving the money every month so I can better afford food, so i was really sad when I found that you NEED a phone number to sign up. Super disappointed, I really wish there was an option to sign up via email..

Hi, thanks for letting us know that email sign-up would work better for you! As a small platform we do phone sign-ups to protect users' safety, but as we grow other options might become available. I appreciate your input and hope you can join Lex in the future 💚🌈
