Here’s our Top 7 Gay App recommendations which you should use when travelling …
Grindr is one of the biggest gay app around the world, so no matter where you’re going, you’ll definitely be able to meet other gay singles to hang out. However, it is banned in certain countries like Qatar, so if you’re planning to meet people there, be sure to use a VPN to circumvent the ban.
Next up is Taimi, an app designed for gay men. Unlike other apps, Taimi is designed for men seeking real connections. This all-in-one app combines the features of gay dating with a social network, allowing you to form quality connections and expand your social network. Within the app, members can create groups (not unlike Facebook) that cater to their interests, launch discussions and even plan events for the community.
Hornet, a rather new player in the field, seeks to invade the space by taking what Grindr does and taking it up a notch. The app is much smoother compared to Grindr, and based on user reviews, there seems to be lesser ads popping up, providing a much more seamless user experience. Profiles are verified to give users a peace of mind. Hornet is great for gay travelers as it goes beyond the dating/hookup scene. There’s a plethora of community features built-in, allowing users to search for events happening around them and even follow others for updates, providing great insight into the local gay scene of the countries you’re visiting.
If you’re travelling to China, where internet censorship is rife, then you’d want to bring Blued (Blued.com) with you. It is currently the largest gay social network app in the world, and majority of its users (about 27 million) are based in China. The founder is a strong advocate for LGBT rights, and he is committed to the legitimization of same-sex relationships in China. Blued has recently partnered with Hornet, so you’ll be able to get the same social networking and safety features (such as verified profiles) that makes Hornet a safe community. Blued also comes with the ability to live stream with followers, allowing you to share key moments and also watch streams of other guys nearby.
For bears, Growlr (Growlrapp.com) is the app for you. Its global network allows you to find local bears wherever you’re travelling, and there are up-to-date bear runs and bear bar listings, allowing you to plan a night out socializing whether you’re at home or overseas.

As a result of the booming niche of gay travel, the website also serves as a platform for the gay community to connect and collaborate, serving as a social networking service and travel guide.
