Photographer Matt Lambert is looking.

Grindr is partnering with photographer Matt Lambert to cast for a one of a kind photoshoot. unnamed
We’re looking for real Grindr users who are open minded and bold with an edge who want to take part in a highly creative project. All models will be paid and you must be comfortable with nudity.

The photoshoot is taking place in Reykjavik on Saturday August 27th and Sunday August 28th. We will not provide airfare or work visas for this project.

Please send an email to [email protected] with the following information:

Name, age, contact, time availability, and a recent clear image of your face and full body. If the photographer is interested, he’ll contact you via email.

Please visit http://dielamb.com/ to see the artist’s work.

We look forward to seeing you.

About That Daily Beast Article

We were shocked (and pretty mad) to read an article about a journalist using Grindr to bait and inadvertently out gay athletes in Rio. Not cool. It showed a total disregard by the journalist and the Daily Beast for the discretion and safety of these athletes during one of the most important moments in their careers. These guys deserve a spotlight on their talents, not their sexual orientations. In instances like this, the account would be immediately banned.

We have always considered Grindr a safe space for the gay world. And while everyone is welcome to hang, it is with the understanding that this is a community, not a novelty for reporters to troll. And hey, if you’re that curious about how guys meet each other online….maybe you should write an article about your own sexuality, not someone else’s.

Grindr and Ren Hang want your look.

Break out of the grid and get in front of our camera.

REN

We’re partnering with Beijing-based photographer Ren Hang to cast for a one of a kind photoshoot. We’re looking for Asian Grindr users who are open minded, curious, not afraid of breaking boundaries and want to take part in a highly creative project. All models will be paid. 

The city of the photoshoot is currently open. We will not provide airfare or work visas for this project. The date of the photoshoot is in August 2016. 

Please send an email to [email protected] with the following information:

Name, age, height, weight, contact, time availability, your location in August (city, country, etc.) and a recent clear image of your face and full body. If the photographer is interested, he’ll contact you via email.

Please visit www.renhang.org to see the artist’s work.

We look forward to seeing you.

Are you a Grindr user in LA? Let’s talk about it.

Grindr is casting for our first short-form video series, and we need active Grindr users who want to take part in this unique reality experiment with us. We’re not looking for actors or porn stars, just real gay, bi or curious guys who are comfortable opening up to us and using Grindr in an unexpected, thought-provoking way. There might be some dirty talk, but there will be no nudity or sexual behavior of any kind. This is a PAID project…and we promise it will be fun!

Currently, we are very interested in meeting with HIV-positive guys, including those are undetectable. We also would like to meet guys taking PrEP. But everyone is welcome to message us!

In order to be eligible:

  1. You must be a current and active Grindr under (we will verify this before meeting you).
  2. You must be comfortable talking about your sexual history and preferences.
  3. You must be comfortable communicating with guys on Grindr and potentially face to face.
  4. You must reside in the LA area since we will be shooting locally.

We will be shooting on Friday August 5th at a private location in West Hollywood. Shoot time will be during the late afternoon/evening for up to 8 hours.

Just send us a clear pic of your face, a screenshot of your Grindr profile and a little about yourself to [email protected]

If we think you’re a match, we’ll ask you to come in for an informal meeting between August 1st and 4th.

Thanks! We look forward to having some real talk with you.

We are stronger when we are connected.

When the names of the victims from the Orlando shooting were released, we felt compelled to honor their lives by collecting their photos and creating an online memorial. We encourage all members of our tribe to take a moment to see their faces and to know their names.

You can view it here.

But what happens next?

Grindr is committed to giving our LGBTQ community a more powerful voice, as well as providing opportunities to channel that voice in order to have a meaningful impact on issues nationally and globally. The more we’re unified, the more we can accomplish.

Over the coming days, look for more resources through the app and on our social channels to get involved, including:

A petition to lift the blood donation ban for gay and bisexual citizens.

Everytown For Gun Safety

Let’s take our anger, take our sadness, take our grief, take all the emotions we’re feeling and let’s do something. Let’s be the change that no one has seen before.
