Non subcribe dating websites
Grindr denied the claims, but users still found that references to being trans on their profile were blocked in their profile descriptions.
CEO Joel Simkhai said: “Under no circumstances do we delete/ban/censor transgendered users.
Leapolitan responded by saying, “hopefully youll [sic] bite into a poison apple.”In July 2013, gay app Scruff’s newest update included a function that had been a longtime staple for websites like Gay Romeo or Gay.com: the ability to define yourself as any number of ‘communities,’ and also state which ones you sought in a partner.
Grindr introduced the feature themselves in October the same year and called it ‘tribes.’ Among the options for ‘jock’, ‘poz’, ‘leather’ or ‘twink’ are options to identifiy ‘trans’/’transgender’ on Grindr and Scruff respectively.
Fuentes does not identify with binary notions of gender and has found other people have responded badly to his way of thinking and being on apps.
On Grindr, Fuentes said, there is a “hyper-masculine white worship of men.
So I guess for somebody who doesn’t fit any of these descriptions it’s a bit challenging.” He has previously received messages out of the blue from men saying “What the fuck is wrong with you? ” (to quote Fuentes), but he takes it in his stride. He loves the fact that, like on Grindr, users can identify as transgender. I’m not necessarily transgender but I fit under the umbrella of the queer non-binary.

He recounted to me one user’s feedback of a date with a trans user who had not made his situation clear on his profile.There was a lot of positive feedback from people interested in non-gender binary people.
