#POPxoPride: These 8 Fun & Friendly LGBTQ Dating Apps Prove That #LoveIsLove

Gone are the days when people had no option but to hide their sexual orientation or keep their love interest for the same sex to themselves. There was a time when love was considered less of a beautiful feeling and more of a fearful abomination, meant to be hidden or buried away in one’s heart. Well, thankfully, not anymore! With the abolishment of Section 377 of The Indian Penal Code which decriminalised the LGBTQ community, the society is finally allowed to let go of their apprehensions and come out of the closet without any hesitation.

So, now that we’re allowed to love whomever we want - how do we find a potential match? The world of online dating is anyway a labyrinth but these 8 awesome and absolutely free apps have created a safe online space for friendships, love and dating for the LGBTQ community, proving that after all, #LoveIsLove.

1. Delta

Delta is India’s first homegrown dating app for the LGBTQ+ community. Unlike the other apps where you’re randomly forced to scroll through hundreds of profiles to eventually come across the ones you like, it already shortlists those with whom your possibility of making a connection is high. The app asks you to take a one-minute quiz which helps it understand you and your personality better. It then suggests people with whom you’re likely to hit it off. It also gives you the option to take control and join groups in order to meet people around you who share similar interests. Now, doesn’t that sound fun?
