Tinder Allowing More Gender Options

In a blog post from Tinder yesterday, the dating app announced it’s introducing more gender options for users—meaning everybody can identify authentically. In the post, the company outlines just how easy it is: “When you tap ‘I Am’ and select ‘More’ you can type a word that describes your gender identity. You can also select to be shown in searches which best reflect your identity.” Acknowledging that the app hasn’t had enough tools to be inclusive before, the team at Tinder says that while they haven’t been perfect, they are continuing to learn and grow—and want to make everybody welcome.
