AYA

AYA (As You Are) is a SAFE space for LGBTQ Matchmaking. We are an APP
that creates a conducive environment for LGBTQ dating, matchmaking & matrimony for INDIANS
across the globe.

The spot for a safe, serious, and healthy platform is still open, not to miss, “Indian”. We want to change the perception of LGBTQ Dating from “Hookup” to “Serious Relationships”, offering
 Ease of DISCOVERING compatible LGBTQ singles
 Build interesting conversation starters on the platform to ENGAGE
 Create AWARENESS amongst parents about non-binary sexuality of their children

KEY USPs:
>> We have a mandatory verification process, which other apps do not. You will see male profiles in lesbian dating apps.
>> Since we are the most visible Made in India app for LGBTQ singles, we will attract users who prefer to interact in their regional language.
>> Icebreakers, gamification, and offline meetups will add to our USP.
>> Cross border matchmaking is also part of our plan, which other dating apps do not focus on.
