Sure, you might prefer to try out gay saunas while traveling , but in countries where homosexuality is seriously frowned upon or outright illegal and is pushed underground, there is no way of connecting with the gay community apart from gay hookup apps.
Gay hook-up apps are a great way to meet locals, but be sure to keep safe! We strongly recommend you set up a high-quality VPN on your phone before going to protect your privacy, to remain anonymous and to keep access to your favorite websites and apps. Better safe than sorry!
Using apps like Scruff, Grindr and Hornet is your way to tap into the gay scene of wherever you are and find secret gay bars, underground parties, and other events. As a word of warning, if you are traveling somewhere where LGBT rights are not great, make sure you get a secure VPN on your phone to protect your privacy and, in some places, unblock these apps. Elevating the game is Taimi, a newcomer designed for gay men seeking real connections.
We also love that Taimi is focussed on the security and safety of its users with special verification and authentication systems to keep fake accounts out. There is nothing worse than a professional catfish right?
And there is also the possibility of creating groups where users can launch discussions, organize events, cooperate and collaborate with NGOs. This is the social network aspect and we are obsessed with it. There is also a collaboration with the Trevor Project meaning users can contact Trevor immediately from their profiles and the possibility of making video calls, meaning Taimi is one of the best gay apps currently out there! So get downloading now to form quality connections, stay safe and share without being judged! As you might guess from the name, Scruff is the slightly rough-around-the-edges version of Grindr, developed for those guys who like a little, well, scruff!
The users tend to be that bit more masc and a little older than on Grindr, although with its growing popularity there are plenty to choose from. You can scroll for nearby and around the world, so could always set up a meet-up in your destination in advance.
While there are a lot of similarities between Hornet and Grindr, the newer Hornet works much more smoothly, with less of the irritating ads that pop up on Grindr to get in between you and your new piece of eye candy. What makes Hornet so great for gay travelers are the community features that help users network beyond dating. It started in Berlin and has now spread around the world and, while heavy on the hook-ups, also enables users to find friends, dates or learn more about LGBT issues.
It aims to be a safe and friendly environment where you can live your queer life to the fullest. The app is free and it just takes creating a quick profile to get you in touch with tonnes of guys all over the world. Wait, what? This is the largest gay social network in the world? Well, it was developed in China and the majority of its 27 million users are there. Internet censorship is rife in China and Blued is a way of getting around the banning of sites like Grindr. Its founder is a former policeman and committed to LGBT rights and we love that the network is now in partnership with Hornet.

Some have paid versions, but prices aren't anywhere near the ridiculous ranks of the eharmonies of the world. The company has conducted some pretty illuminating research about its international user base. If you want more people to see your profile, you can pay to have it promoted like you would on Twitter. Yes Tinder Plus:
The reviews that I read now seem suspect. Many eluded to the prospect of being able to talk to your likes for free in an abridged interaction. That is not the case at all. Without paying you are unable to even see the people who claim to like. The app parameters of operation are misleading at best and deceptive if the truth where applied.
Signing up is free but so what if all of the functionality of the app is inaccessible. I imagine he was allowed to contact me as a lure to get me to sign up for the paid services. Finally and very importantly, except for one person, I believe if I am recollecting properly, none of the people I was presented with was less than 3. Not exactly in the immediate vicinity. Being that I reside in NYC that is pretty telling in terms of scope and reach of this apps prescriber base. I will be deleting this app for all the reasons mentioned and more.
