“Tinder is about everyone and everyone deserves to meet someone special.” In keeping with this philosophy, Tinder launched a new trans-inclusive feature in November.
Tinder co-founder Sean Rad believes that ‘identity’ is a very complex area. And, Tinder works on the principle of simplifying the process of dating. Therefore, Tinder has successfully built a better product to include transgender users.
Tinder worked together with GLAAD to build a more LGBT-friendly App.
The app now enables choice from a clearly mentioned list of genders. This helps in mitigating the awkwardness of coming out and a risk of harassment.
The success of this trans-inclusive feature can be measured from the fact that it has 250,000 trans people using the app.
