THE HINDU - Nov 4 - Two years ago, when the Supreme Court read down Article 377, decriminalizing homosexuality in India, Sunali Aggarwal had an idea. She began working on a new app, As You Are (AYA). After users fill in basic details, that include gender, orientation, an email address and a phone number, they have to upload a selfie which is verified by the team. The app is in English, and sees 60 people sign up daily with ~5K+ downloads to date. Going beyond just dating, AYA also hopes to provide a space to make friends within the LGBTQ+ spectrum.
