Tinder Is Funding a $100k Wedding for One Lucky LGBTQ+ Couple
Love comes in many forms, and so do "how we met" stories. Popular dating app Tinder wants to celebrate this fact with a giveaway in honor of Pride Month, noting the "countless types of success that come out of a serendipitous Swipe Right." As a nod to the diverse community the match-making app supports, the company is funding a $100k wedding for one lucky LGBTQ+ couple, reports USA Today.
On Instagram, Tinder said this of their promotion: "Share your Tinder success story on Instagram with #TinderSuccessStory for a chance to win your dream wedding, paid for by Tinder." On the Tinder blog, more details are provided. "In celebration of Pride this summer, we're giving away a dream wedding to one of Tinder's greatest success stories," writes the swiping app. "If you met your partner on Tinder and you're ready to take the plunge, we invite you to share your story on Instagram for a chance to win your dream wedding, paid for by Tinder." To apply, just follow two simple steps: 1) post your story on Instagram by June 30th, and 2) use #TinderSuccessStory and @Tinder in your post.
This isn't the first time Tinder's made an effort to welcome the LGBTQ+ community. Last year, the platform expanded their gender options to include labels like agender, transgender, and genderqueer, and added the ability to write in your own identity.
Happy pairs wasted no time in taking Tinder up on the offer, and couples who met on the app are already taking to social media to share their stories. The 'grams are seriously sweet.
The company will announce the winning couple on July 5th, so be sure to apply if you qualify and stay tuned.
