Chi­nese les­bian dat­ing app shut down

New Straits Times - - World -

BEI­JING: A pop­u­lar Chi­nese dat­ing app for les­bians has been shut down, along with its web­site and main so­cial me­dia ac­count, just as the gay com­mu­nity cel­e­brates Tai­wan’s de­ci­sion giv­ing same­sex cou­ples the right to marry, a first for Asia. The app, Rela, set up in 2012, has five mil­lion users, a cached ver­sion of its en­try on Ap­ple’s iTunes site shows. But users be­gan notic­ing last week that the app, along with its Twit­ter-like Weibo ac­count and web­site, was no longer ac­ces­si­ble.
