Grindr users name Hillary Clinton ‘Ally of the Year’
Users of gay hookup app Grindr have voted Hillary Clinton ‘Ally of the Year’.
The app polled users in the US, UK and Australia on a range of subjects for its end of year survey.
The former Secretary of State – and expected 2016 Presidential candidate – topped the list for best ally, while British singer Sam Smith was perplexingly voted to have the best coming out story – despite claiming the app was ‘ruining romance’.
Smith said previously: “We’re losing the art of conversation and being able to go and speak to people and you’re swiping people.
“From my experience the most beautiful people I’ve been on dates with are the dumbest, so why would I swipe people who are ‘unattractive’ when I could potentially fall in love with them?
“Stop Tinder and Grindr!”
Meanwhile, Neil Patrick Harris was voted gay icon of the year, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest was voted the celebrity most likely to come out in 2015 – and Vladimir Putin was named ‘enemy of the LGBT community’.
Earlier this year, a similar poll found that a majority of Grindr users would vote for Hillary Clinton if she runs for President – but users overwhelmingly agree John F Kennedy was the hottest President.
