Stay Home, Stay Connected This Thanksgiving With Five Days of Free Premium Features
With COVID spiking around the country and health experts calling on Americans to limit their Thanksgiving travel, plenty of people will be missing their usual gatherings with family and friends this year. To combat any holiday loneliness that might crop up, we’re giving our U.S. users a different Grindr premium feature each day over the long weekend. You may not be able to host or travel, but you’ll have more options to browse, chat, get into some virtual play, or just well-wish your Grindr neighbors from afar.
As we’ve been noting in our safety messaging since the spring, the best way to slow the spread of COVID and protect your community is to stay home and avoid meeting up in person. In some places, this is a requirement, but it’s a good idea for everyone. Being isolated, however, doesn’t mean being alone—here are some safe ways to connect during the outbreak:
- Meet up virtually with photos, audio, video chat, and group chat
- Flirt and get to know people on the app: discuss books, movies, careers, and kinks
- Reach out to another Grindr user for support if you’re feeling lonely or scared, or support someone who is
- ”Right Now” can wait—make plans to meet up in the future instead
It might not be the Thanksgiving we had all hoped for, but supporting each other and staying connected virtually during these times is a great way to preserve the spirit of the holiday without putting yourself and others at risk.
Check out the schedule of Happy Hour features below, and have a happy—and safe—Thanksgiving from Grindr.
