The gay dating app, Surge, subverts the way men can meet other men of all colours and stripes from different backgrounds by distinguishing itself as a safe, judgment-free space with no labels. Gay, bisexual, queer, or wherever you may be on the colourful spectrum of life, you don't have to put yourself in a box to fit in the LGBTQ+ dating scene, according to Surge.
As of today, Surge has over a total of 4,000,000 registered users with 3,000 signups every day via Google Play and Apple's App Store. Launched in 2015, it has become one of the trendiest apps for the gay community.
The tech company that had started it all was initially set out on an LGBTQ+ app which they named Lavender. Through sheer observation of trends and online dating experiences, the company has come to the conclusion that it is much more conducive to have specialised dating apps on sexuality. Hence, the birth of Surge and Lavender as its counterpart for lesbian and bisexual women.
Claiming to be the #1 gay dating app is one hell of a bold move. We certainly have the responsibility to don our investigator coat and see if this app is worth the membership fees and can actually provide you with real, solid dates. Is Surge actually one helluva of an app or is it all just hype? Read on our review below to find out!
