The team behind HE.SHE.THEY. have launched a new social networking app and podcast.
Created by co-founders Steven Braines and Sophia Kearney, the new platform aims to bring together the different aspects of the collective’s activities, while also offering a place to chat, make new friends and even go out online.
In a statement, Steven Braines of HE.SHE.THEY. said, “With diversity, inclusion and community at the heart of everything HE.SHE.THEY. does, we wanted to disrupt the social media space like we did in We All Know That Social media sites and dating apps can be toxic with anonymous hate-spitting trolls, but we also know that these apps can bring a lot of positives if you can cut down on the negatives.
âFirst of all, in order to use the online hub and the app that comes with it, you need to validate your profile by submitting a photo of yourself making the same separate random gesture as in the photo. This is verified by real humans rather than relying on an algorithm.
âOur community has always been about platforming and celebrating weird and wonderful humans, so of course we have a zero tolerance policy on homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, disability, bodily shame and racism on the app. People can report hate speech – again to a real human being – and depending on the nature of the violation, people will either be notified of their behavior or banned from the app. “
App users will also soon be enjoying significant discounts and early releases on HE.SHE.THEY., Covering concert tickets, clothing, and full episodes of their new podcast series launching today.
The first podcast features contributions from Eats Everything, kid club Max The Tribrid and more.
