About Grindr

Since launching in 2009, Grindr has grown into the worlds largest social networking app for gay, bi, trans, & queer people. We have millions of daily users who use our location-based technology in almost every country in every corner of the planet.

Today, Grindr proudly represents a modern LGBTQ+ lifestyle that expands into new platforms. From social issues to original content, we continue to blaze innovative paths with a meaningful impact for our community. At Grindr, we create a safe space where you can discover, navigate, & get zero feet away from the queer world around you.

As of June 2020, Grindr has new owners with a track record of multiple successful Bay Area start-ups. The new leadership is demonstrating a renewed commitment to creating an experience for users that is safe, fun, & productive, as well as a positive & uplifting company culture in which everyone can be their best selves. At the heart of Grindrs mission in this new chapter is a shared set of core values including transparency, accountability, experimentation (failing fast), & strong allegiance to the LGBTQ+ community.
