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.

- Explore the world and meet users from everywhere.
- Use hashtags to find like-minded people.

Inbox advertising and notifications for spam/advertisements is total BS! Not to mention the random 5 second commercials that lock the app until finished with embarrassingly loud music making it impossible to be discreet while using the app. Also the ever present banner ads on top of giant ads within the grid of profiles, means sometimes 50% + of the screen is ads. It's just far too aggressive & ruins the experience. Worse than any app I've used. Deleted account and uninstalled. 👎

Great social media type app for gay men. It has a little bit of everything, but you can use it for dates and meeting people as well. You can share articles and photos and videos. There are stories. My only real complaint is that when you click an external link, it doesn't save your place in the app for more than a minute or two. Unlike other apps, it will reload the whole app and you will have to scroll through your feed to find where you are at again.
