Tinder Offers New Gender Options in Australia

Tinder has now given transgender, non-binary and gender fluid people the option to be listed on the dating app.

Tinder has recently unveiled a “More Genders” option, which will allow these people to type in what gender they identify themselves as, rather than having to select from the “male” and “female” options that have only been made available previously.

The new update has been developed in conjunction with the transgender organisation Transgender Victoria andĀ ahead of Sydney’s Mardi Gras parade last Saturday.

Australian users are now able to edit their gender identification by editing their information on the app. They can also decide whether or not to have this information displayed on their profile.

Tinder Australia is late to changing these new options, as the feature was made available on the UK and US editions of the app in November 2016.
