#Tinder Will Warn Users When They #Travel To Countries Where #HomosexualActivities Are Unlawful; #LGBT

First of, taking back “homosexual activities.” So we're using that instead of “same-sex relationships,” and it's more fun.

On a serious note, any LGBT person should do their own research before traveling to countries who are hostile to the LGBT community. That is, if they're planning to engage in homosexual activities while in the host country. It's the responsible thing to do. You don't need an app for that, just common sense.

Travel smart and responsibly. People need to stop relying on babysitters to hold their hand through their adult life.

Lastly, isn't Tinder a dating app for straight people?

Tinder will warn LGBTQ users when they travel to countries where same-sex relationships are punishable by law theverge.com/2019/7/24/2070….

Tinder is releasing an update that’ll warn LGBTQ users when they’re traveling in countries where same-sex relationships are punishable by law.

The Tinder team partnered with the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association to identify the 69 countries where same-sex relationships are illegal. Punishment for same-sex acts and relationships vary from place to place, but in nine countries, including Iran and Saudi Arabia, prosecutors can seek the death penalty against same-sex acts and relationships.

Other dating apps, including the gay dating app Scruff, also warn users about potential consequences of LGBTQ dating in certain countries. Of course, Tinder counts millions of people around the world as users, and it’s recently begun particularly focusing on courting more users abroad. As it expands its reach, the company needs to keep it users safe and aware of what could happen if they keep their profiles public. Ashley Carman/@verge
