Top 10 Best Sites
Looking for a dating site you can trust? Search no more.
With more than 40 million users from all over the world varying in age, race, religion, interests, cultures, and backgrounds, in general, Zoosk is one of the most diverse and gay-friendly dating sites around.
This global dating site has something for everyone, and it welcomes gay, lesbian, bi, questioning, queer, trans, and non-binary daters of all kinds.
Here’s what LGBTQIA+ singles need to know before joining Zoosk:
When signing up for Zoosk, you’ll select your gender and gender preference (man interested in women, woman interested in men, man interested in men, or woman interested in women), along with all the usual stuff like date of birth and location. You can always change your gender and gender preference later if you want to, so don’t worry if you want to jump from one to the other.

Zoosk gives singles a lot of freedom, and it can serve bisexual daters as well. If you identify as bisexual, Zoosk will give you a second account for free, so you can search for both gay men and lesbian women separately and more efficiently. You’ll need to contact the site for more information.
When looking at Zoosk’s homepage and profile dropdowns for gender and gender preference, you won’t find options for transsexual, transgender, queer, asexual, pansexual, or other gender and identity expressions. You’ll have to write that information in your profile, which could make it more difficult to find a compatible match.
Zoosk has an inclusive environment, but its features and technology don’t always meet the needs of those who don’t fit into traditional heteronormative boxes. The site could learn from other dating sites, like OkCupid, that have expanded the gender and sexual orientation options available and, therefore, drastically improved the dating experience for millions of LGBTQIA+ singles across the globe.
Millions of gay, lesbian, and bisexual singles have had a lot of success on Zoosk, including Adam and Trathen, who met each other on Zoosk. We understand how frustrating it can be for trans and non-binary people to online date, but we also know the Zoosk team is a staunch ally in the process and has the dating pool to get LGBTQIA+ singles in the game. Keep giving the dating site your feedback on how to improve and meet your needs, and things will get better and better. Now get flirting!
