Guys are using thirst and OnlyFans to encourage people to register to vote – and it’s working
With the clock ticking down for the people of the UK to register to vote, the gays of Twitter are doing the Lord’s work – getting their followers to register.
The Tuesday deadline to take part in the December 12 general election is looming over the nation, and the boxes ticked by voters will ultimately shape the future of the UK.
And gay Twitter is using its tool-belt of thirsty pictures to help encourage people to vote.
‘Send me photo evidence of you having registered to vote and I’ll send you my OnlyFans.’
The method involves two crucial steps.
Step one, the user tweets they have made an OnlyFans account.
Leading to step two, where the link to the aforementioned OnlyFans is actually to to the page to register to vote. Thirst trap-grade picture is optional but preferred.

If you haven’t already heard/seen, my nudes have leaked. I refuse to be embarrassed by it, we’ve all got them. So here’s the link. Do what you like: https://t.co/7amhR3s8pa

Civil activism at its finest.
But it’s not just using bit.ly/ links and recognising the thirstiness of their fans, users are taking to Grindr as well to rally the voters:

Some folks regretfully approved of this recruitment method:
Gays offering nudes and/or access to their Only fans in return for registering to vote are so precious and we must protect them at all costs.
The devil works hard, but the gays work harder.

Others had conflicted thoughts:
Not sure whether the Twitter gays getting behind the register to vote drive via thirst trap trickery & fake OnlyFans pages is genius or a horrifying indictment of the state of us that we see expect that *everything* should be understood through the prism of sexual currency ?

Millions apply to vote ahead of Tuesday deadline.
Now that all the major parties have unveiled their manifestos – providing blueprints for their respective visions of the country – the UK has now been thrown into uncertainty.
The fate of the election will determine how, when and even if the nation will withdraw from the European Union. The divorcing of the bloc has swallowed some party manifestos, while others have amplified LGBT+ causes.
Moreover, the UK has seen a surge in voter registration, and younger demographics are leading the charge.
Government data shows that nearly 3.2 million people applied to register to vote between October 29, when the election was called, and November 25.
Of these almost 1.2 million were under 25 and just under 966,000 were aged 25 to 34.
But the UK’s electoral watchdog, the Electoral Commission, said one in three 18 and 19-year-olds are not registered to vote.
“Private renters, too, anyone who has recently moved home, people without a fixed address and those in some black and Asian communities– all these groups are less likely to be registered,” said Electoral Commission director of communications, policy and research Craig Westwood, according to the New York Times
“They are at risk of missing out.
“If you want to make sure your voice is heard, do it now.”
