Grindr is an all-male location-based network that allows gay, bi, or curious men to connect and hang out with one another.
Since launching in March 2009, Grindr has become a global sensation and surpassed 7 million users in 192 countries. On a daily basis, Grindr counts some 1.2 million users who log on approximately eight times per day and spend an average of two hours each day using the app. Grindr also offers a fully loaded, premium subscription-based service called Grindr Xtra. Grindr is currently available on the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Android and BlackBerry models. For more information about Grindr, visit www.Grindr.com.
In 2011, Grindr launched Grindr for Equality, its social action division. Grindr for Equality works diligently to engage the Grindr network in a variety of ways to help bring about a more equal tomorrow. Initiatives include helping to promote a documentary on the conditions of the Jamaican LGBT community and driving donations and signatures for petitions to denounce anti-homosexuality policies in Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine and Russia.
