Yesterday, the Washington Post published an article looking at the online dating activity of gay Christians across the United States.

The piece was written by gay Christian Garrett Schlichte, after receiving a number of messages mentioning his religion following the reactivation of his OkCupid profile.

In addition to describing his experiences on dating apps, Schlichte also speaks to three LGBTQ Christian activists, to see whether they were experiencing the same response to their identity.

Interestingly, he finds that many of the strange reactions he has had online as a gay Christian are not unique, with others also describing similar experiences throughout their online dating life.

He also asks them how much the religious identities of people they meet online impacts how they would view the potential relationship, to which they answered with mixed feelings.
