If you’re looking for love and also happen to believe in the superiority of the white race, you’re in luck: There is now a dating website for white supremacists.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, many of its members are on Team Trump in this year’s presidential election.

The website, WASP Love, bills itself as a place for people who identify with various forms of white supremacy—”Traditional Christian, white nationalism, heritage, preservation, Quiverfull, Confederate, Southern Nationalist, Christian Identity, Kinism, alt-right”—to find like-minded mates for “dating, courtship [and] marriage.”

“Finally! The dating site for those wishing to preserve their heritage,” the site’s founder, whose handle on the site is @Stonewall, wrote in an inaugural post when WASP Love launched in February. @Stonewall is likely a nod to Confederate General Stonewall Jackson, who coincidentally shares a name with the Stonewall Inn in New York City, the site of a series of riots by the LGBT community against homophobic cops in 1969 that are widely considered to have sparked the gay liberation movement. @Stonewall did not immediately respond to Vocativ’s interview request.

There currently are only 110 active members on the site from places across the globe. The vast majority are men. To create an account, WASP Love asks many of the standard dating site questions—sex, age, height, etc. But it also asks for religion and political views, which is where Donald Trump comes in.

“I am a avid republican and truly believe that Trump will save our country,” one user, with the handle @brittl88, wrote in the section of her profile asking to describe her political views. “88” is a common code in the white supremacist movement and means “HH” or “Hail Hitler,” as H is the eighth letter of the alphabet.

“Conservative Republican,” wrote another user, @redwingsgal. “Trump 2016.”

The website also has group pages where white supremacists can chat collectively and point each other to various racist websites and podcasts. In the “alt right” group, @Stonewall points other users to the Daily Stormer website, a popular white supremacy blog started by infamous bigot Andrew Anglin.

There are other forums for single white supremacists—Stormfront, one of the most popular white supremacist internet forums, has a section for racists to offer advice and vent frustration with dating outside of the white supremacy movement.
