DowneLink has undergone a significant transformation over the years, but our commitment to serving the LGBTQ+ community remains unwavering.
We are excited to embark on this new chapter in our journey, and we look forward to continuing to connect and engage with our users in new and innovative ways.
Founded in 2001, DowneLink was a free social network and mobile app catering to the LGBTQ+ community. The platform aimed to provide a safe space for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals to connect and engage with each other online. With a focus on multiculturalism and diversity, DowneLink quickly became a popular hub for the LGBTQ+ community.
What Happened to DowneLink?
In 2012, LGBT television network Logo announced that it was acquiring DowneLink.com [More]. The acquisition was part of Logo's strategy to expand its digital footprint and offer more content to the LGBTQ+ community. With Logo's support, DowneLink was able to continue to grow and thrive as a social networking platform for the LGBTQ+ community.
However, as the years went on, it became increasingly difficult to maintain and operate a social networking platform, particularly one that catered to such a specific audience. Despite its popularity and dedicated user base, DowneLink faced financial challenges and struggled to keep up with the evolving demands of the market.
In 2022, DowneLink made the difficult decision to shut down its social networking platform. The team behind DowneLink recognized the importance of the platform to the LGBTQ+ community, and wanted to ensure that its legacy continued in some form.
Find other LGBTQ+ Apps
After much deliberation, the team decided to pivot and transform DowneLink into a website that focuses on sharing users' favorite and useful things.
What is DowneLink Now?
Now, DowneLink is a website that aims to curate and share content that users are passionate about, ranging from dating apps and social networks to tech gadgets, video games, anime, TV shows, cartoons, and comics. Our mission is to provide a platform where people can find and share things that they love, and connect with others who share similar interests.
We understand the importance of community and connection, which is why we have created a space where people can come together and engage with each other over shared interests. Our website is designed to be inclusive and welcoming, and we strive to create a space where everyone feels comfortable being themselves.
In addition to curating content, DowneLink also features a blog that covers topics such as pop culture, technology, and LGBTQ+ issues. Our blog is written by a team of passionate writers who are dedicated to sharing their perspectives and insights on a range of topics that matter to our users.
At DowneLink, we believe that everyone deserves a space where they can feel seen and heard. We are committed to providing a platform where people can express themselves, share their interests, and connect with others who understand and support them.
