Twitter Is Calling For Gay Community To Delete & Boycott Grindr

 

George Arison is the new CEO of Grindr. Georga Arison is an ultra-conservative, ultra-right-leaning, ultra-Trumper, ultra-Republican voting probably homophobic used car salesman. Grindr is “the world’s largest social networking app for gay, bi, trans, and queer people.” As of December membership crossed the 11 million mark. That adds up to millions and millions of dollars going into the pocket of someone who is actively voting to strip us of our hard-earned rights.

In a video posted to their TikTok schxleo calls for Arison to “resign — we don’t support gays who support anti-gay politicians.” PREACH! In the video, Borcht Belt Barbie explains,

“[Arison] has far too much praise for really, really homophobic politicans including Trump and Mitch McConnel. People who want to completly gut LGBT rights in this country.”

According to Them, Grindr has a not-so-great history of hiring folks who don’t support the community they are profiting off of,

“In 2018, the company’s then-president Scott Chen wrote in a Facebook post that he agreed that marriage is a “holy matrimony between a man and a woman.” The post was written to condemn anti-gay marraige campaigns in Taiwan while affirming that his personal stance was based in religion, but that he would not support companies who were donating to anti-marriage efforts.”

 

 

Outrage is growing the queer community, and rightfully so. Arison supports Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin running for President. Youngkin vehemently opposes gay marriage, and transgender equality and calls for schools to out students to their parents. Hell fucking no. He does not deserve our money. Members of our community are asking users to delete the app and hit Grindr where it hurts them the most: their wallet.

 

 

 

 

How do we feel about this Instincters? Grindr users, does this information make you want to delete the app? Why or why not? Sounds off in the comments below.

  1. I don’t hate anyone for their political beliefs period. I disagree with some of the stuff certain people believe in. There’s too much hate in the world, so I try just to love. I see both sides to most situations.
