shutterstock_626617529-670x447Have you ever wished you could just block all those horrible racist people you see on Grindr from your life? Well, now you can!

Introducing Noir, a new dating app for POC and other “lovers of diversity” who are sick and tired of seeing all those “No blacks, no asians” bigots commonly found on apps like Grindr and Scruff.

According to its website, Noir wants to “recreate the environment of Harlem’s Black owned night clubs from the 1920s that is conducive for dating.”

“These were clubs where people of color got to enter through the front door. These were places where the service was catered to Black people. They were also the only places where you can find Black, White and Other all in one place simply enjoying life.”

We’re down with that!

Developers say:

The division that exists in the Gay community of today has become a problem and to combat it, Noir now exists. Noir caters to people of color but all are welcome. Bigotry will NOT be tolerated in Noir. Noir is a place for people of color ranging from Black to Latino to Asian to Indian and lovers of diversity. Coming to Noir requires an open mind and an open heart.

The app is currently only available on iOS, but an Android version is in development. It’s free to download and offers all the features we’ve come to expect with dating apps, including local and global listings, favorites, and messaging.

It also has a zero tolerance policy for bigotry.

“We do encourage our members to report any profiles that use bigoted language and/or rhetoric,” the website says. “‘No \< insert race here \>, just a preference.’ will also not be tolerated. Noir is not the place for that type of language.”
