    Yeah I also suggest cancelling subscription.I logged a ticket enquiry about the issue and they're not going to bring that back. Working on some searchable tag thing - which is just some bullshit. Even this supposed poll thing is not going to lead to anything. Just stop taking out subscriptions cause it's not worth it. I'm including the feedback from ticket #6621443 below:

    Hi there,

    Thank you very much for this feedback. We feel we made the right decision at the time to remove the ethnicity filter. We'd heard feedback from some parts of our community about how this made them feel. Until we could address those concerns properly, we felt it was best to remove this filter.

    We know that many of our users want to be able to more easily find the people and connections they are looking for. We have been working hard to make that easier. Furthermore, we will soon be releasing a new feature, searchable tags, that will allow users to more easily find the connections they are looking for!

    We will have more information soon, and we can't wait to hear your feedback about it.

    Best Regards,
    Gabriel @ Grindr Support

    I enquired about the return of the race filter before and was directed to the online chat on the topic and the poll that was run. What is the formal outcome of the decision? Extensive justification has been posted on the topic chat already and users want to know. When is the deadline for the decision? Can the company please issue a formal statement.

    Can we get a turn around time on this issue being resolved from Grindr Administrators or was this platform just put up to placate complainants?

    I'm a white guy living in a city where there aren't a lof Middle Eastern guys. How am I supposed to quickly look for someone without the race filter? The FUNCTION of the race filter was to ACTIVELY search for someone, not intended to BLOCK people. Blocking people from a certain race solely based on their race is racist. Looking for someone with a specific skin tone, height, age, role or relationship status is a preference! #dontfilteroutfilters

    Totally agree. I appreciate the fight against racism but if one were to remove that as a filter then same would have to go for position preferences which can be interpreted as bottom shaming, or ageism etc. I think general awareness campaigns would be a better approach. Please return the ethnicity filter
