OkCupidlaunches over 60 identities.
- This is in addition to over 20 sexual orientations, 22 gender options that OkCupid users can choose from along with an option to create their own pronouns that’s already present on the app.
This announcement follows OkCupid’s legacy of inclusivity. It was the first dating app to give users the choice to use their preferred pronoun or create one to add to their profile. This has led to almost 2 million straight and queer users proudly displaying their pronouns on their dating profiles worldwide. It was also found that 7 in 10 Indians on OkCupid say it’s important to them that their match cares about the LGBTQ+ community and 97% of all respondents support marriage equality. Moreover, OkCupid was the first dating app to expand gender and orientation options for users with over 20 sexual orientations and 22 gender options to choose from helping users find a meaningful match for themselves in an authentic way.
As conversations around Pride grow in momentum (and rightly so), OkCupid user’s responses to the questions on the app are clearly indicating that identity is more than just casual chatter when it comes to finding their kind of love. And what’s more, across gender, orientation and identity, Indians are clear about one thing-
