Irish politician uses Grindr to advertise European Parliament campaign
An Irish politician has used popular dating app Grindr as part of her advertising campaign.
Following the lead of two Amsterdam politicians, Phil Prendergast, an Irish MEP, who hopes to become the head of the European Parliament’s LGBT Intergroup, is using Grindr to promote her campaign.
“I have been one of the loudest voices in the European Parliament on LGBT issues such as homophobic and transphobic bullying, and marriage equality,” she said.
“I think the importance of having an Irish voice lead the Intergroup is underscored by the fact that in 2015 we will hold the first positively-worded referendum in the world – giving people the option of legalising as opposed to banning – gay marriage.”
