But understanding the difficulty of that situation and having compassion for it is part of our obligation as human beings and participants in this subculture and community.”Grindr may have received a lot of flack in the past in regards to its support of trans users, but to Simkhai, Grindr is not about cultivating a community forum.For him, trans users should use Grindr because of the sheer volume of members: over 5 million. Grindr currently has twelve ‘tribes,’ and for some people this just is not enough.There was a lot of positive feedback from people interested in non-gender binary people.I call it ‘the menu’ when I open up these apps, ‘Oh, what’s on the menu today? they streamline this process, when you have a specific taste you can go to that.”Fuentes, like every Grindr or Scruff user (including myself), has dozens of stories of mortification, grotesquery and hilarity: he gathers the worst offenders up on a twitter hashtag: #grindrchronicles. I get a lot of men who are tranny chasers or just obsessed with what’s happening with your genitalia.But these functions have, for some, fetishized trans users as well as help build a group of openly trans users.Some gay apps, like the newer Mister, have not subscribed to the community/tribe model.We have thousands of users who identify themselves as transgendered and they are welcome members of the Grindr community.

The digital dating sphere can prove tricky, and bruising, for the trans user.
