Blued, the Chinese gay app, has received $1.6m in Series A funding.
The app lets users connect via location to chat, swap photos and share content from social media sites like Weibo and Tencent QQ.
The Beijing-based app now has 3m members, a growth of 1m since last December.
And they have added to the $3m in funding they received last year, with another $1.6m from undisclosed investors.
The app was produced by start-up company Danlan, which was founded by 36-year-old former policeman Ma Baoli.
Baoli also created China’s first gay website – Danlan – which is a gay networking, forum and dating site that has 3m registered users.
