Gay Label was founded right in Los Angeles. So naturally, it’s at the top of our list for how to meet local LGBTQ people. The website was created as an alternative to the recent “app-dating” phenomenon that has monopolized the world of online dating. Gay Label offers a more authentic experience that matches male-identifying gays with other compatible men. Membership is by invitation only, which you can request on their website.
