Grindr’s Great All-American Gay Road Trip to Roll into Pittsburgh

The bus pulls up to P Town Bar on Tuesday, June 25, from 8 PM to midnight.

For Pride month, Grindr, the popular app for LGBTQ+ individuals, is hitting the road with a fully-decked out bus, stopping in ten cities across the country, and that includes Pittsburgh this Tuesday night. The initiative is part of Grindr’s mission to be the global Gayborhood in your queer pockets.

Grindr, in collaboration with Q Care Plus, invites the community to join their big, gay road trip. The bus tour aims to enhance user profiles with new photos and provide valuable health services. Attendees can enjoy two full-service portrait studios for a new Grindr profile photo, receive sexual health and wellness care from Q Care Plus, and participate in activities featuring local drag queens, giveaways, and more. The event will also highlight local data insights, such as Pittsburgh’s unique preference trends and popular spots within the LGBTQ+ community.

Grindr provided a little sample on their Pittsburgh members’ preferences

Pittsburgh stands out with some unique tastes. The city is noted for its tall residents and preference for stocky builds. We also apparently have a bunch of unicorns locally: Grindr noted a high number of versatile bottoms per capita in the area. The most popular hobby is video gaming. “Daddy” is a top tribe in the city, and “cowboy” is a favorite sex position.

In addition, Grindr users voted for their favorite local spots, with notable places including Club Pittsburgh as the best gym, 5801 Video Lounge as the best queer-owned business, Blue Moon as the best gay bar, and Hampton Inn as the best queer-friendly hotel (if you know, you know).

The tour stop will take place at PTown Bar, located at 4740 Baum Blvd, Pittsburgh, PA 15213, this Tuesday, June 25, from 8 PM to 12 AM EST. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of Grindr’s Great All-American Gay Road Trip and celebrate what makes Pittsburgh’s LGBTQ+ community unique.
