Photo guidelines: what you can and can’t upload to your Lex profile
Profile photos are moderated by our team of queer & trans moderators after they’re uploaded, and images are never automatically banned.
If you see a photo that concerns you, you can submit a report by tapping the three dots in the top right corner of someone’s profile and selecting "Inappropriate photo" as the reason for that report.
Note: please only report someone if they’ve violated our community guidelines - if you don’t like someone’s vibe, you can always block them.
What’s not allowed?
Based on our photo guidelines, here’s what is not allowed in your Lex profile picture:
- Nudity, including any nipples, or other sexually explicit content
- Minors, even if they’re in the picture with you
- Violence, weapons, offensive or illegal content - that includes photos depicting drugs
- Images that aren’t your property, or a misrepresentation of your identity
As Lex often contains sexually explicit content, you might be asking yourself why images with nudity or nipples aren’t allowed. In order to be as equitable as possible, while also conforming to the app store's rules for what content is 'sexual', we decided not to permit visible nipples.
That, and our team values consent! While text posts can include content warnings, there’s no way to warn someone what they’ll see when they visit your profile. We ask that you wait to share suggestive images with someone until you’ve received their consent.
