Tinder has become more transgender friendly, as the company has announced they are including over 35 gender options in its latest update.

“OUR GOAL IS TO PROVIDE A PRODUCT THAT GIVES OUR TRANSGENDER AND GENDER NON-CONFORMING USERS A BETTER EXPERIENCE ON TINDER.”

Introduced on Tuesday, the new update expands upon the gender options that uses can select in their profiles. The previous version only included options for male and female. Some of the new options include “Trans Man,” “Trans Woman,” “Transgender,” “Gender Fluid,” “Two-Spirit,” “Pangender” and “Neither.”

“Our goal is to provide a product that gives our transgender and gender non-conforming users a better experience on Tinder,” CEO Sean Rad said in a statement. Back in June he promised he would improve the Tinder experience for transgender daters who want to use the App. Users will also have the option to show their gender on their profile or not.

It is no coincidence that Tinder decided to push the update during “Trans Week”. The company has been working with transgender advocates including GLAAD to make it easier for transgender and gender non-conforming people to use the app.
