Well the news we reported on about Gay.app yesterday might ( I SAID MIGHT) just be true.
Gay.app now forwards to Blued.com (of course a redirect does not mean a sale took place), a Chinese based social app geared toward the gay community. Blued has received over $131 million in funding.
Early this morning someone tweeted me that there was talk about the sale on Weibo.

Now I don’t know if this sale will be ever verified by a website that is recognized in the domain industry.
One of the comments on Weibo was 100万美金的跳转网站，LGBTQ的域名保护意识厉害了！
Google translated this as One million dollar jump site, LGBTQ’s domain protection awareness is great!
Again before people lose their minds or start trolling, this sale is not confirmed by anyone the industry acknowledges, (to those outside the industry, they probably don’t care about this distinction).
Some will ask why report or discuss a sale not verified? Because it’s important to shine light imo, there are people who will see these sales on other places that don’t have much conversation. By a sale being talked about, people will either prove it or disprove it, that way those new to the business will have more information before they decide to register similar names.
Disclaimer: Please do not take this possible sale as a reason to go out and register lesser quality gay related domains in .app.
