Gay Immigrants and Grindr

Revitalizing Queer Urban Spaces?

Publikation: AndetUdgivelser på nettet - Net-publikationForskning

Resumé

In this (open-access) essay, I assess the idea that Grindr and related apps render urban gay spaces obsolete, and offer three counter-arguments based on my research with immigrants and tourists who use Grindr. In short: newcomers who use Grindr might actually bring new life to queer urban spaces, because...
1. Newcomers don’t use Grindr in the same way they use (physical) queer spaces;
2. Newcomers use Grindr *in* queer spaces; and
3. Newcomers often have better luck finding sex offline.

The essay is part of the "Spotlight on Disruptive Urban Technologies" by the International Journal of Urban and Regional Research.
