Apps Genius Corp today announced the launch of GetGayFunded.com, its second crowdfunding site using its proprietary crowdfunding platform. This follows the release of GetFunded.com, a crowdfunding site for the health and welfare of animals.
GetGayFunded.com is specifically designed to meet the unique crowdfunding needs of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community. The site is a place where both businesses and individuals can post their projects and others have the opportunity to fund the projects they find interesting.
There are a number of projects already being posted to the site, including an individual who is seeking assistance in relocating his deceased mother from a family property where he is not welcome, to a more suitable location where he can visit without being subject to the discrimination of his family. Other projects are seeking to raise money for causes throughout the LGBT community and to open up the abilities of various organizations to reach larger audiences by tapping the social media functionality available through GetGayFunded’s platform.
“What we often find is that members of the LGBT community have a difficult time securing funding for related projects, often on decisions based solely on their sexual preferences,” says Adam Kotkin, CEO of Apps Genius Corp. “Even other crowdfunding sites often have their limitations on what approved users are able to post as projects. GetGayFunded.com is designed to provide members of this community a haven where they can find acceptance of their ideas and the funds to make their dreams come true while working together as a community.”
