A Lesbian Dating Website Where You Can Meet Single Black Women

Dating as a queer person of color (QPOC) isn’t always easy. Living at the intersections of queerness, womanhood and Blackness is a complex experience and it can be difficult to find others who appreciate and understand it fully. Wherever you live, it can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack. But thankfully it’s the 21st century, and we’re no longer forced to trawl gay bars or place personal ads in the newspaper to find other queer women that get it. For QPOC, the HER app is a must-have to connect with queer women who appreciate and stand up for QPOC. Who knows? Your person could be just around the corner.

Black Lesbian Dating

QPOC have long had to carve out their own spaces in the world, and that especially goes for finding love and dating. Most QPOC don’t just want to date other QPOC, but dating as a queer Black woman can be particularly hard to navigate. It can make a world of difference to have a community of other women who are out there dating and facing similar issues to you. Just having people who understand that you can vent to, have a laugh with and swap dating horror stories with can make you feel more confident and connected.

The HER app’s QPOC community provides a space where you can connect with people like you in your area. Don’t underestimate the importance of having these people in your life. It can make the difference between finding dating a stressful, confusing experience and really having fun with it. Even if you go on a bad date or don’t click with someone, it makes it easier if you can have a good laugh about it with people that get it. It’s not a bad date: it’s a great story.

The Black LGBTQ+ Community

Finding community is important for all LGBTQ+ people, but especially for QPOC. The world isn’t always understanding or supportive of Black queer love so whether it’s for friendship or you’re looking for the one, it’s vital to find people who understand and support you for all that you are. The HER app has communities you can join specifically for QPOC so you can find your tribe.

It’s no secret that unfortunately in some parts of the LGBTQ+ community, racism is alive and well. Black queer people face unprecedented levels of violence, particularly trans women of color. But we know that Black queer people and trans women of colour have long led the fight for LGBTQ+ rights worldwide. Black queer love is at the centre of the LGBTQ+ community and its history. Sometimes for POC and particularly Black people, you just need to connect with people that get that and who feel these things deeply like you.

Personals: Finding Queer Black Love & Community

QPOC personals are a thing of the past. Thank God. Black lesbian dating can be hard but the 21st century has (mostly) been kind to us, especially when it comes to finding love, community, or whatever it is you’re looking for. Apps have completely revolutionised the way we date, and as QPOC it’s never been easier to find each other.

It’s vital to have people in your life who share your experiences. QPOC sit in the intersections between queerness and Blackness, which is a unique experience that can be difficult for others to relate to. Your love should be celebrated! We rarely get to see Black queer love in the media. If you’re not connected to QPOC communities near you, it’s easy to feel alone and misunderstood by the people around you. If there’s one thing we know, it’s that you’re not alone. There are millions of people like you, you just need to know where to look.

Find Your Person Now for Free on HER

Starting your search for love, friendship or community doesn’t need to be hard. With apps like HER, you can look for that meaningful connection whenever you need it or whenever you have time. If you’re in line at the grocery store, waiting for a friend or just bored at home, you could be finding and connecting with people like you. 

The HER app is completely free and couldn’t be easier. If you’re a queer Black woman (or any queer woman for that matter), it’s the only app you’ll ever need. Even if you’re jaded from past experiences with dating apps, what have you got to lose? Download the app on the Play Store or the App Store, and find out for yourself just how many QPOC are in your area searching for the same things you are.
