Allegations of transphobia are not new in the world of gay online dating.

In 2011 LGBT media outlet Queerty took the app to task for allegedly deleting accounts that made reference to being trans.

Leapolitan responded by saying, “hopefully youll [sic] bite into a poison apple.”In July 2013, gay app Scruff’s newest update included a function that had been a longtime staple for websites like Gay Romeo or Gay.com: the ability to define yourself as any number of ‘communities,’ and also state which ones you sought in a partner.

Grindr introduced the feature themselves in October the same year and called it ‘tribes.’ Among the options for ‘jock’, ‘poz’, ‘leather’ or ‘twink’ are options to identifiy ‘trans’/’transgender’ on Grindr and Scruff respectively.

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.

He identifies as transgender on Scruff but not always on Grindr.

Grindr denied the claims, but users still found that references to being trans on their profile were blocked in their profile descriptions.

CEO Joel Simkhai said: “Under no circumstances do we delete/ban/censor transgendered users.

But at the same time I have amazing interactions with other trans men and women.” For Fuentes, a neutral space like the internet is always going to have the best and worst of any community, even the queer one.

Grindr’s ‘tribes’ function has been wonderful for users like Fuentes, but now they want more groups included. I feel like it’s treading dangerous territory when we say we need less,” said Fuentes with a laugh.

Researching this article I ended up talking to androgynous and ‘genderqueer’ users who had placed themselves under the label of ‘transgender’ as it was the nearest they could find to what they wanted to call themselves—like Nick Fuentes, a 23 year old, proudly genderqueer freelance casting director who has recently moved to New York from Austin.
