For my research project in final year, I decided to look into the LGBTQ+ community and the rising popularity of online dating apps increasing the sense of alienation within the community. Online dating apps such as Grindr categorises its users into different ‘tribes’ based on their ideal type, the way in which they may dress or just what they’re interested in. But through these tribes, there is not much room for anyone who does not necessarily fit that mould. Through this, there is an increased risk of alienation within the society for these ‘alternative’ types of people which leads to segregation within the community.
