The mobile dating service gets a major update.
Grindr has made more profile options available to their dating app this week.
The mobile meet-up service has traditionally been for gay or bi men seeking men, but the company now makes “woman,” “trans woman,” “non-binary,” “non-conforming,” and “queer” as options of interest.
Profiles can also be made to specify the pronouns you wish to be identified as: “He/him,” “She/her,” and “They/them.”
The update comes during Transgender Awareness Week, the company tweeted this will help “trans and non-gender conforming connect better!”
Grindr got the message out through social media with the help of Emmy-nominated actress/writer and trans activist Jen Richards.
In a video, Jen and friends talk openly about what people say on dating apps and how it affects them.
