If you don’t follow Herstory Personals on Instagram, then stop what you are doing and follow immediately. Seriously.
Herstory Personals is a collection of personal ads written by queer babes in search of love and lust. Inspired by the 1980s/90s “On Our Backs” Personal Ads, queer folks put together their wittiest, sexiest and dreamiest words, hoping for a dream babe to respond. “On Our Backs” was the first women-run erotica magazine and the first magazine to feature lesbian erotica and real personal ads. So you could imagine my delight when I discovered there is a virtual Insta-version! The ads are AMAZING. Queer women are so funny, naughty and well spoken. *swoon*
Herstory Personals is basically a more artistic, gay version of Tinder. Instead of swiping based on a picture, you read a snapshot of what someone is looking for, and message if you fit the part. Like I said, these ads are seriously beautiful. They are no joke—there’s a long waiting list to have yours posted. Women have made real-life connections and relationships thanks to these Herstory Personal Ads. After posting, queer people like and comment on it, and if you’re extra lucky, direct message you and ask you out. I think this is the best thing to happen to lesbians since The L Word.
