A Portland transgender woman is suing Tinder for deleting her dating app profile after she added details about her legal sex work and transgender identity to her profile's bio.
Ariel Hawkins says hours after she added the phrase "camgirl on the side. preop trans woman" to her profile, Tinder notified her through email that her account violated the app's terms of service and her account had been deleted.
"I wanted to just find love like everybody else," Hawkins says. "I'm just looking to date. I was trying to find a boyfriend."
