#KindrGrindr: Grindr Launches Anti-Racism Campaign

Grindr has launched its ‘Kindr’ intiative to address sexual racism…
 
Grindr is taking a stand against discrimination on its platform stating that no user is entitled to tear another down for “being who they are”.
 
The gay dating and hookup app has launched the #KindrGrindr campaign to raise awareness of racism and discrimination and promote inclusivity among users.
 
It says it will ban users who “bully or defame” others and will remove offensive language from profiles.
 
Zac Stafford, chief content officer at Grindr, says he has experienced racism on the app himself.
 
“I was a user of Grindr before I started working here, so I was already familiar with the racism and issues faced by people of colour or non-masculine identifying people on the app,” he says in a statement.
 
“Online discrimination has reached epidemic proportions affecting not only Grindr but other social networks.”
