About this app

Hornet is a free social networking app for gay, bi, trans, non-binary, and queer adults to connect with each other. You can meet new people, find friends, chat with nearby users, date, or even start a new relationship.

It goes beyond the usual "dating app": Hornet offers a complete social experience, allowing you to connect with LGBTQ users through text messages, live video, video stories, feed photos, and more.

Regardless of which tribe you identify with — from twinks to bears —, everyone is welcome on Hornet!

- Chat with nearby users through text or audio messages.
- Send emojis and stickers, and react to messages using emoticons inspired by the queer community.
- Explore the world and meet users from everywhere.
- Use hashtags to find like-minded people.
- Set filters to check exactly who you are looking for.
- Send Awards to the content you like the most. You can also receive Awards for yours and cash out the balance!

You need to be at least 18 years old to use Hornet.

Update 08/09/2023 — This app was getting better then they go and remove the only thing that made it any different to all the other apps! The unique feature that made it more interesting the individual per profile news feeds. No longer possible to post without a picture and no longer possible to scroll through individual profile feeds. Suggest this is put back otherwise there would be no reason not to use competitors apps.

Dear Hornet Team, If you did not shove full screen flash advertisements up user's @$$es, most people won't use AdAway or Adblock on your app. You could be a little less greedy and show subtle advertisements that do not take over the phone screen, making you money yet keeping the app usable.

Hornet app closes when im trying to translate or do anything after around 15 seconds. Have to wait until it opens it's self again, then it happens again... so frustrating. Is there anything I can do as I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with the same result!

What's new

With our latest release, Hornet users can now express themselves more authentically with exclusive and exciting audio tracks, created by cutting-edge, AI music software.
Users can choose from a variety of music genres to add to their Video Stories in the app. The video’s content, mood, and audio is then analyzed by computer-learned technology to deliver a custom-composed soundtrack.
We'll continue to update Hornet often to make it a faster and more reliable way to connect with the community!
