New Tribes Categories
I think you are missing out on a big community of people. The chub and chaser community. I know their are other apps out there but if you could just add chub and chaser to the tribes section you may get a lot more people interested in the app that are from the chub/chaser community. On occasion (as a chubby guy) I get lucky and find a guy who is into chubby guys. But a majority of the time I’m not so lucky. I see you added Bear and that is great but how do you find the people who are into bears and into chubby guys. This should just be an easy addition to the Tribes section. You could even make an announcement to the lgbt community and see how many new/returning clients you could get. I know I have left and come back to Grindr at least 7 times in my lifetime just from being tired of all the hate I would receive. (Recently I haven’t but in the beginning I did.) Please consider the addition of Chub and Chaser to the Tribes section of your app.
Thank you for your time.

For many of us who are out of the closet, we are fearful of closeted individuals because closeted individuals are frequently murdering, raping, and assaulting openly GLBTQ+ people who are out of the closet. This is especially common amongst closeted cisgender men being a danger to Trans people, with a disproportionate risk of harm against transfeminine people of color. Many uncloseted folks also have moral, religious, or political objections against associating ourselves with grown adults who are living a fraudulent life.

I think what you're asking for is a bit much. I mean think of all the different combinations people could be listing and many people could be hairy and plenty of other things but someone shouldn't have to be that specific just because you find it annoying that hairy twinks pop up when you do a search for hairy.
I am into hairy and want to be able to filter for these profiles on the grid. The problem is that even though "hairy" is checked on my profile filter, I still end up seeing profiles that list "hairy" in addition to one or more of my unchecked tribes. For example, if my tribes filter has "hairy" checked and "twink" unchecked, the grid will show profiles of twinks who list "hairy, twink" on their tribes, which does not make any sense.
Can you please fix this, maybe by creating an option to both include AND exclude any combination of tribes that the user wants to see? For example, "include profiles that only list hairy and jock on their tribes and exclude profiles that list any other tribes".

Why even bother having TRIBES as a filter search option when more than 80% of gay men do not even understand how to use that feature.
example: 50+ year old male stating he is in the Jock tribe. Some may be delusional but I'd say most select that option not because they are a jock (clearly) but because it's a jock they are looking for.
lol funnily enough if the search for jock all they will get is a bunch of men their age also looking for jocks.
so just remove it, clearly gay men are delusional or just stupid.
We have released a new featured called Tags in the US (and soon to be worldwide) We do have a tag for pup play! Make sure to check it out.

I would like to add in tribes a pup tag so you can find other guys interested in pup play as is a growing area in gay community

So I along with other uses like to x dress but the closest tribe to this is trans. In order for me to find guys into it I have to put Trans in my tribes but I’m not trans or into trans.
On the tribes filtres, it would be interesting to have new ones as Dom/sub tribe or bdsm .
( I am a Dom but not specially into leather so the Leather fetish tribe doesn't correspond to me).
I am sure that we would see appear a lot of bdsm people on this app!
Have the option to filter military and uniformed men as a tribe.
To add chaser in the tribes would be a very easy thing to do and be very useful for helping guys hook up etc ...

And "Puppy", or just custom tribes
Seriously, I can filter by “sober” but I can’t specifically look for a bigger guy?
I was redirected here after contacting Grindr about how the app just got updated with all these new features, yet didn't include this one. I've been reaching out to Grindr for TEN YEARS about adding this feature, since they include searching for poz and trans people, but not chubs/chasers, and every time I reach out, I get redirected to one of these forums where the voices go unheard. What ACTUALLY has to happen in order for this to get added?
Grindr , because you let everyone have many tribes it has become a reverse search. It especially hurts the trans tribe.
When I search I search trans tribe. it’s IRRITATING WHEN I GET MORE GUYS WHO ALSO WANT TRANS than actually trans. Please at lease add a window explaining “DO NOT CHOOSE TRANS IF you are seeking Trans.” it’s ruined my experience. I like the wind dow of instructions you just added for pronouns.
Please do the same for tribes explaining about trans. PLEASE !!!
Chub and chaser STILL have not been added to the tribes...it such a simple thing...the other apps have it why doesnt grindr.....thisbhas been raised by me as well as other paying members....whats the issue here?
100%. I'm cis and pan. I'm not CD or transitioning. I'm not part of their tribe, per se, but I'm attracted to them.
On the flip side, searching for them results in people like me me who are looking for them, but not them.
