Lesbian dating apps (such as LESDO and Butterfly) are emerging as crucial sexual landscape in China and Hong Kong. Previous scholarship have analysed new formations of cyber communities and intimate encounters on these platforms, but less attention was given to the use of identity sub-labels, and more importantly, to the ways in which dating apps contribute to ongoing lesbian feminist debates on identity sub-labels. How do users privately feel about this system? What self-presentation strategies do they employ and what are the boarder impactions about constructing sexual identity in the age of digital dating?
