After several months of being attacked by Instagram and Facebook through accusations of "nudity" and "sexual activity" posts, we've decided it's time the gay community needs a more welcoming (tolerant) and inclusive social media app.
With FB and IG ramping up their targeting of bulge pics and Twitter being in a tailspin, it's led users to wonder where they can safely celebrate male body positivity without fear of corporate censorship.
We launched a GoFundMe campaign last month and we're grateful for the support thus far -- but we still have a long way to go!
On Feb. 22, we got the final notice that the Happy Bulge Instagram page will disappear upon the next violation of the platform's homophobic "community guidelines."
As a small business relying heavily on social media audiences, we can no longer tolerate waking up every day fearing that, with one product photo, we'll lose access to 6,700 followers on Instagram and over 5,000 on Facebook -- crippling our company.
If you love your purchases -- or simply the free eye candy you get as a follower -- please consider making a donation to our proposed app. We definitely need your support and also welcome you to join the app once it's completed. We promise no unreasonable censorship.
Also, please share the information about this campaign with your followers. We need all the support we can get.
Thanks for your love and well wishes.
