Grindr Support for LGBTQ+ Community in Ukraine
Table of Contents

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has left the already vulnerable Ukrainian LGBTQ+ community in an even worse situation. Like the rest of the world, we at Grindr have been thinking about what we could do. Here’s what we’ve done so far.

Our Employees

The news of this crisis underscored the need to get more financial resources to the LGBTQ+ community in Ukraine. Grindr made an immediate financial contribution to OutRight Action International’s Ukrainian Emergency Fund, which is making grants to Ukrainian LGBTQ organizations as well as to organizations in other parts of Europe that are helping displaced Ukrainian queers.

For Ukrainian Grindr users

We are making our safety-related information optimally accessible to Grindr users logging in from Ukraine, to demonstrate our care. We have also translated our safety guide and safety messaging into Ukrainian and shifted the text in such a way that lets folks know we stand with them.

For Grindr users world-wide

We knew Grindr users outside Ukraine would want to join in providing life-saving support, so we publicized a fundraiser for OutRight Action International’s Ukrainian Emergency Fund to the global Grindr user base, giving them an opportunity to get involved.

While we are deeply troubled by Russia’s actions toward Ukraine, we are also warmed by the outpouring of generosity and care from our users for the Ukraine LGBTQ+ community. Grindr stands in solidarity with the Ukrainian people in this time of crisis, and we add our voice to the chorus calling for a swift end to this military aggression. We will continue to look for ways to support those in need.
