Online dating apps are a great way for members of the queer community to find love without fear of discrimination or judgment. With so many different options available for playing the field, it can be intimidating and even scary to try online dating as an LGBTQ+ individual, but choosing the right platform can make all the difference in making your dating experience safe, diverse and even exciting! No matter what type of connection you’re looking to forge, these LGBTQ+ inclusive and affirming apps make it easy to find someone who respects, accepts and celebrates your identity.


Recently launched dating platform Fluid is a “love without labels” app, founded by celebrity pals Rebel Wilson and Carly Steel. Fluid is designed for singles of any sexual orientation to match and meet new people, with a philosophy based on exploration, curiosity and openness to all identities. Try Fluid here.
