We are living in the digital era where technology is developing rapidly. The development of technology has supported all sectors of life, including enhancing relationships. More and more dating apps are created to help people connect together and find their loved ones. Trans, Bi, Les, or whatever your sexual orientation, we are all equal, we can date thanks to today's technology. So in this article, I list the 10 most popular dating apps for the LGBT Community in 2022.


Tinder is the most popular dating app in the world today. So far, Tinder has 30 billion matches. This dating app helps everyone meet new people easily. What do Tinder users search here? The answer can be very colorful, depending on the individual: a happy date, one-night-stand, lover, spouse, even friends.

Tinder attracts many users thanks to its simplicity in use.  You can swipe right to express your interest or swipe left to indicate rejection. If you both swipe to the right then a match will be created between the two. And it is estimated that there are hundreds of millions of rejections every day on Tinder.

Nowadays, Tinder is available in 196 different countries, particularly the United States, Brazil, and the United Kingdom. This app is free and is available for download on both iOS and Android.


Grindr is a popular social networking app for the gay community with over 6 million users worldwide. Due to many social barriers, this community is hard to find each other in real life. Therefore, dating apps are becoming more and more necessary.

In addition, with Grindr, you can chat easily with saved phrases and send multiple photos at a time. Grindr is a geosocial app, so it allows users to chat and meet with other men as near as a few feet away. Many people use Grindr to explore sex.

However, because of the flawed content management system, it allows racism and disdain. People in the gay community who want to find a serious relationship can also have difficulties here.

3. Scruff

4. HER

HER is also a popular dating app in the LGBT community. Her is not the same as other dating apps. It allows users to create a personal page like on social networks and give out tips related to homosexuality so that users have the opportunity to meet in real life.

The dating app has more than 4 million users and promises to be a safe and supportive community. It is not only a dating app but also a social platform that allows users to participate in community discussions as well as attend events.


Although less popular than HER, the SCISSR app is well worth a try. Besides dating, this app is also a "cultural application" so that lesbians users can make friends and chat with each other.
