If we know shift our focus over to how applications have evolved to support those LBGTQ+ community, we must consider Robyn Exton who created the app, ‘HER’.
This story is particularly notable due to its origins
. One morning, Robyn woke up and realised that she had won the EuroMillions – discovering she was only one number short of the jackpot. This win awarded her with 3500 pounds which she went on to invest in a risky business venture. Quite clearly, her decision paid off.
The app itself offers a safe platform for gay women to communicate with one another – allowing them the same dating opportunities that many other apps offer heterosexual individuals. And with 70% of LBGTQ+ couples meeting through dating apps
, Robyn’s creation certainly find a lack of demand!
