The Gays.com Team

„press area“

Gays.com is a free casual dating and social website that connects you to your local and global gay community. Find local dates, meet new people and discover what’s on and what’s hot near you.

Our values

Gays.com is primarily aimed at gay and bi guys, but we don’t discriminate - everyone is welcome. As gay guys, we know first-hand what it’s like to be discriminated against - whether you identify as gay, bisexual, bi-curious, transgender, or just don’t want to label yourself, we’re all about tolerance and acceptance.

Our goal is to offer a high-quality, sexy and open-minded place where everyone can express themselves to make and meet new contacts, share interests and connect with the local and global gay community.

A brief history

Gays.com first hit the scene in 2008 initally as a LGBT social and dating network. Owned by a band of brothers: David, Julius and Robby Dreyer - who already acheived success with German casual dating website Poppen.de - the Gays.com launch was timed to coincide with the fourth International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.

Since 2012, Gays.com has grown steadily with users signing up on the platform from every continent. Key to our growth has been understanding our users. We regularly survey our members to understand what they want - and then give to them! As a result, many new features have been added along the way, such as: Personal Ads, Speed Dating and Gay Events.

Gays.com today

In 2016, Gays.com underwent a makeover and now comes to you with a fresh new look and feel in addition to some new features. With this release our aim is to help our members hookup and find and share sexy events and locations. We also wanted to offer a site that works well on mobile and desktop, while displaying all the unrestricted content we know you enjoy!

Love your sexuality!

We believe that practicing sexual desire is a human right and sexuality should be enjoyed and celebrated regardless of sexual orientation. At Gays.com, we’re upfront about sexuality, which is why we provide an honest place with a safe and open community where people can meet up or talk about WTF they want without fear of judgement.

The Idaho Challenge

The Idaho Challenge was a collaboration between Gays.com and the Committee for the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) to raise awareness for the sixth annual event in 2009.

Gays.com invited people to 'Take Up the Idaho Challenge' to step out in front of the camera and in their own language, introduce themselves, state where they're from and how proud they are to be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.

Founded in France, the IDAHO Committee has been instrumental in the drafting of the new United Nations statement urging the decriminalization of homosexuality. Although 67 countries have signed the new United Nations statement to decriminalise homosexuality worldwide, anti-gay discrimination remains a reality in many parts of the world. Released on 17 May 2009, we wanted to send a message to the people of the world in every language that LGBT people are present in every country and in every society.
