  1. Bring back the ethnicity filter

    As the title says, BRING BACK THE ETHNICITY FILTER! Just because a subset of users don’t want it doesn’t mean to erase it. As many have stated before, som individuals live in area where one group is more predominant compared to others, thus making it limited for those individuals who are more comfortable closer personal preference. It isn’t limiting or racist for an user experience to the LGBTQ+ community to seek the comfort of their own kin. Having the ethnicity filter doesn’t mandate the user to use it, but gives this options just like there are filters for position, body…

  2. Bring back Ethnicity filter

    I’m paying money this for searching ethnicity.
    This is not racial problem at all.
    This is “preference”
    I’d like to find what I want to look.

    Could you understand the difference?

  3. Ethnicity choice

    There is no reason to have removed the ethnicity filter this is real racism please return it everyone has a preference or a choice in what ethnicity they choose to be with the fact that there is a choice and different ethnicities are listed is fine as long as they’re there they’re included there’s no reason to delegate what choice we have to look at please return it

  5. Mock location

    Dear Grindr,
    This an important message. I understand that in the recent update Grindr has disallowed usage of "Mock GPS". But Please lend me an ear for a minute.
    There are many like me who still have to live and work in insensitive areas. Where local people are insensitive, apathetic and hateful towards LGBT community.
    My recent experience of using the app in the small town I'm working at was bitter. Everyday I get followed by a local Gay guy from my office to my local residence. Another guy ended up blackmailing me and it was reported too.

    My point…

  8. bring back filtering by race/ethnicity

    Hi. I think you're making a big mistake by eliminating the ability to screen by ethnicity. I suppose you mean well, but the reality is that most POCs use that screen to eliminate the possibility of the very racist abuse that your company says it's necessary to remove the filter to avoid. White South Africans are *very" racist, and if you live in a border racial residential area, you will get far more nonblack people than black people. You're basically exposing us to the potential for racist abuse by doing something that you think should result in the opposite. Did…

  9. Ethnicity filter

    I paid for extra and used it to find others like me. I’m Asian living among non-Asians. I feel lonely and can’t find others like me. And now you’ve removed the feature that caused me to PAY for a subscription

  10. Bring back the race feature

    Not everyone is interested in everyone. If your only allowed to see so many people I. A selection only 1/5 is the one I am considering someone to be with. Please bring back the race feature. It’s a preference not a stance on profiling.

  12. Where is the ethnicity filter?

    I am immediately going to cancel my subscription of Grindr. I can't believe you would have the audacity to remove this filter that we all paid for. I'm morbidly obese and I'm offended that there's a weight filter. GET RID OF IT! I'm also short, standing 5 feet tall. I'm offended by your height filter. GET RID OF IT! I'm also offended that there's a "Geek" option. That is offensive for us geeks. GET RID OF IT! In fact, remove all your filters. You're absolute garbage Grindr.

  14. Ethnicity Removal?

    I read recently that this feature maybe removed on the grounds of racial abuse, This nonsense. I am white and I prefer Asians (sexually). This is not racsism it's a preference. It's the only reason I ever buy Xtra and without it I would never buy Xtra again. So keep the feature in so we can filter to find our preference

  15. Allow Grindr to work using just GPS location

    Grindr will no longer update the local guys grid if you have your phone set to use GPS only. It requires you to use GPS, WiFi and local networks or the nearby guys list no longer updates. This is a privacy concern as Google collects a mountain of information from this method. It also drains the batteries faster.
    Please reverse the recent change and allow us to use GPS location only. Grindr does not need any more than that.

  16. Bring back the ethnicity filter for Xtra

    It is outrageous that I am paying for Xtra and one of my main filters have been taken away. BRING BACK THE ETHNICITY FILTER! It was a terrible idea to take it away in the first place.
