A Chandigarh-based entrepreneur has come up with a homegrown dating app designed explicitly for the Indian LGBTQ++ community.

The app aims to bridge the gap between dating and connecting with others who have come out of the closet and are vocal about their identities.

As You Are or AYA, the dating and social networking platform is the brainchild of Sunali Aggarwal from Chandigarh.

According to Aggarwal, “The key features of the app are customized keeping in mind the suitability and sensitivity of the users, accessibility, and anonymity, easy use and jargon-free-free sign-up, three levels of verification and blanket security, and complete user control,”

As for many from the LGBTQ++ community, the physical world may not be the most conducive space to find a partner, Aggarwal who co-founded Mobikwik.com in 2009 says, “Therefore, the community often turns to the digital world to seek guidance and support.”

Owing to it, AYA aims to create a safe space to counter the challenges of queer dating.
