Turkish Government Shuts down gay dating app Grindr

Kaos GL is reporting that the gay dating app Grindr used by the gay community has been “censored” in Turkey. The app cannot be accessed since yesterday evening. İstanbul Anatolia 14th Criminal Court of Peace blocked Grindr as a “protection measure.” This is yet another measure by the government to regulate the Internet and limit freedom of speech.
