Hi everyone - I created WYD Pride because I wanted to create a LGBT-focused maps app that would give members of the LGBTQIA community one-touch access to locating gay-friendly places nearby. In honor of pride month, I thought it would be fun for people to be able to visualize their city using the rainbow emoji. I think this will be incredibly useful for people who may be unfamiliar with their gayborhood or certain cities where gay venues are not as well known. Simply drag the map to any area in the U.S and tapping the rainbow icon will show you the nearest gay-friendly places. 50% of all proceeds are being donated to select charity organizations. Future plans to expand this globally with the ability to easily toggle between locations and add venue preferences. Comment with any features you'd like to see!

Hate to be that guy, but I stumbled over the name "wyd" pride I read wyd as very close to white. That made me cringe. I am not a member of the community so that may be an issue.

It would be cool if your map can be worldwide and include advices about how to make some money while traveling. Because once you came into the country you really like, you don't want to leave. And some people find a real love in other countries. I moved in Canada like 3 months ago. I've found my beloved one there, but we had problems with money and so I started to search for options and found an article with good advices. Now I work as a freelancer and have no trouble. An article I was talking about, if someone is interested: https://findleapp.com/gay-travel-guide-how-to-make-money-while-traveling-the-world/
