Matchmaking services for sexual minorities rising in Japan
According to the Japan LGBT Research Institute, in 2019, from 420,000 people 20-60 y.o. 10% identified themselves as part of LGBT and sexual minorities.
While the biggest matchmaking agencies in Japan for gay and lesbian singles, e.g. EXEO Japan or Resally, state that the number of LGBT singles that apply is doubling every year.
Tinder to circumnavigate possible Chinese censorship of outbreak
Chinese singles use Tinder as a means of circumvention of state media censorship.
In order to get the information about the spread, users change their location to Wuhan to connect with people that live there.
James, a Vietnam-based English teacher, was told: “…things aren’t getting better at the moment. All kinds of transportation have been cancelled and private mobiles are not allowed in the street.”
