The co-founders of Out, Jen Farmer and Anna Harissis, looked far and wide for a way to make friends in the LGBTQ+ community that didn’t include dating apps. They hoped to find a friendship-forward, social networking app to build genuine connections.
They didn’t have much luck, so they created their own path forward.
