The first app for LGBTQs and their allies looking for new friends to hang and go out with has arrived. Available on iTunes, GayBFF works much like the profusion of dating and hook-up apps available. Users read profiles/interests of others users; swipe left or right if there is basis for friendship; and are notified of mutual matches.
According to the HuffingtonPost.com.
“Ruben Jauregui, Jr. decided to create the platform after witnessing a lack of other social media apps providing the opportunity for LGBTQ people to find friends… While we in the LGBTQ Community celebrate the progress on legal and social acceptance, the rates of depression, loneliness and substance abuse remain stagnant… It is still dangerously alienating to go through life as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer. I want GayBFF to be a community that will help us bond and grow with each other and our straight allies.”
Read the app description from the iTune store,
“GayBFF is for those of us in the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer) Community and our straight allies looking for platonic relationships. GayBFF is so much more than a social networking app, and will change the way people meet. GayBFF is a powerful tool to expand your social network, meet locals during travel, and find people you otherwise never would have met.”
