The best gay dating
It was the first geosocial networking based site and as such, it made the gay-dating game mobile in a way which no other site had achieved before.
Although gay dating sites provide a useful platform in allowing men to meet each other, Christopher Halton writes for Pink News of how they can also put some gay men at risk.
On Monday, I was one of 30 or so men to take part in the filming of an advert for Survivors UK, a lottery funded charity set up to support men who have been raped or sexually abused.
Fortunately, I have never been a victim myself, and attended the shoot merely as an extra.
Beforehand, I researched the charity and read the testimony of a young man who had met someone he had been chatting to on an internet dating site.
I always figured that there would be other guys like me on Grindr. It is unprintable in its original guise, but the subtext was that this ‘gentleman’ was going to come and find me and then forcibly penetrate me whether I liked it or not.
