TechCrunch: Rela, a Chinese lesbian dating app, exposed 5 million user profiles

TechCrunch: Rela, a Chinese lesbian dating app, exposed 5 million user profiles. “Rela disappeared from app stores in May 2017 after it was reportedly shut down by Chinese regulators, though the government never confirmed it took action. But the app returned a year later, according to its app store listing, on a different cloud provider. LGBTQ+ rights in China remain highly limited, even though it was decriminalized in 1997. Many in the community still fight discrimination and attitudes have been slow to change.”
