We’re a team of black queer technologists working to create Thurst, a dating app for every queer person of any gender, any expression, and any background. Fostering a safe and respectful community is one of our goals, in a world where queer and trans bodies face discrimination, objectification, and other forms of violence. Thurst will be regularly updated to ensure each person feels safe and seen.
We help queer cis, trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming folks connect in person. We prioritize safety and community accountability above normative dating culture. We aim to acknowledge all aspects of your identity, not just the ones that fit into standard boxes.
“We must love each other and support each other.” – Assata Shakur
We love you.
We like to imagine what it would mean for every person of any sexuality and gender to not only feel free, but to be free. Through creating and continuing to develop Thurst, we hope to reshape and change the way we all view gender, sexuality, and how we share and express love. Through loving more freely, we are decolonizing ourselves and our communities. Love can take many forms and we hope to make the space for each person to experience love in the ways they need and desire. Love as revolutionary praxis, love as affirmation.
