Grindr's INTO shut down after exposing its CEO being against SSM


Grindr's online magazine, INTO, is gone. The company terminated its editorial staff after 17 months on Tuesday and announced it will be pivoting to video (which has worked so well for other publications). The magazine was geared toward the LGBTQ+ community.

The news comes several weeks after the magazine exposed Grindr CEO Scott Chen of being against same-sex marriage. Chen wrote in a Facebook post back in November that he believes marriage is between a man and a woman, but also a personal matter. Chen says his comments were taken out of context.

The company's head of communications stepped down after learning of Chen's comments and stated he is not surprised INTO is gone but pulled a "no comment" on whether he related it to the expose.
