If you're an LGBTQ Tinder success story, it's time to start sharing it with the world. Because Tinder is celebrating Pride Month with a huge prize for one lucky LGBTQ couple — how does a $100,000 wedding sound?
"As far as dream weddings go, $100,000 will take you pretty far. That’s why Tinder is celebrating Pride Month by offering one lucky LGBTQ couple $100,000 to fund their #TinderSuccessStory wedding," a Tinder press release explains. "Couples are encouraged to enter the contest by posting an adorable #couplespic to Instagram using #TinderSuccessStory and tagging @Tinder, along with a description of their success story for the chance to win."
That's a pretty effing amazing prize. The entries will be judged on originality, presentation, emotional impact, and relevance to the Pride theme — and all criteria will have equal weight. So get ready to see some pretty amazing love stories (and probably a few tear-jerkers).
I think it's great. As a bisexual woman, I really liked using it. I respect the fact that there's no option to screen out bisexuals (it happens on some apps, trust) and it was a great way to meet women who were interested in women, something that just didn't happen in my social circle. Maybe I'm biased, because almost two years later my girlfriend and I are still going strong, but Tinder was great for my queer relationship.
So if you've had a #TinderSuccessStory, it's time to start sharing. Not only to celebrate Pride — though it's a great way to do it — but also because the prize is amazing. So get hashtagging, people.
