Grindr Users Post 'Sexy' Pictures From Holocaust Memorial In Bizarre, Ironic Trend


by Anonymousreply 402/02/2013

[quote]"the unexpected tribute" paid by gay men to victims of the tragedy that took the lives of millions of Jews, as well as gays, lesbians and others exterminated by the Nazi regime. At the time, Grindr CEO Joel Simkhai told Israeli blog Abbanibi he thought the pictures were inspiring.

[quote]“As a Jew and an Israeli, I’m deeply moved by how users are coming together as a community on Grindr to share and inspire others [to] take part in [the] memory of the Holocaust," Simkhai said. "This initiative demonstrates the power and potential of Grindr, as a geo-social network that’s now surpassed 3 million users, as a platform for mobilizing others to promote positive messages for the gay community."

Perhaps the message is "fuck you Nazis and your pogrom against gays. Didn't you guys used to run this very city on fear?"

Perhaps it's not about Jews at all.
