Quick Update RE: Tumblr

Geeks Got Your Back has made the decision to pull down our mirror site on Tumblr, in response to its decision to take down adult content, including that which supports the LGBTQ+ community (and teens in particular) and provides a safe means for sex workers to conduct business. Sadly, this decision means one less large, social-media platform for providing honest information to teens who may be questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity. It will also push sex workers back to more dangerous ways to earn money.

As an organization founded on the idea of helping protect people who are in need, we feel that Tumblr’s decision to remove this type of content takes aim at people who are already marginalized and in need of backup.

We appreciate your support in this.
