Lesbian dating app Dattch has announced their new name: HER. Says creator Robyn Exton:
Dattch was a tricky old name. From people thinking it meant Dykey-Butchy-Snatch to it being nearly impossible to spell. It didn’t represent what we are here to do, to be an app that everyone can find, everyone can relate to and everyone can feel a part of. I like dykey-butchy-snatch as much as the next queer girl, but as the name of our business, it just wasn’t right. We spent a lot of time with users of the app, in different cities and countries, to talk about names, ideas, hates and loves. But we chose a name that felt right, in our hearts, from the moment we said it.
Dattch will still work on Android for now, and HER will launch for the iPhone app soon.

Lesley Gore‘s surviving partner, Lois, shared some tidbits about her passing with Closer.
“It was pretty fast … she had a pain in her back — she went for an MRI and we found this horrible tumor on her spine. She was writing the story of her life. She would want to be remembered for the music and the play she was writing. She had a very rich life. She was a beautiful woman who was an icon and personified fun and lightheartedness, but she was also very serious.”
She also spoke about Lesley’s coming out (in a 2005 interview with us!):
“It was hard for her mother, but not for her. She was totally comfortable in her sexual shoes.”
