After Geng Le, a former gay policeman from China, launched a gay dating app called Blued, he questioned what else he could do for the gay community.
Le decided to launch a subsequent app called Bluedbaby, to help gay men connect with surrogates in the U.S., according to Bloomberg.
“The biggest difference between us and other companies listing is our ideals and beliefs,” Le said, according to Bloomberg. “We want to showcase a Chinese company diligently serving the LGBT community, showing that we do things with value, with philanthropy. That’s what I want to do the most.”
Le also plans to expand into pharmaceuticals to market PrEP, and HIV prevention drug, to Chinese gay men at a lower price, as it is currently nearly impossible to buy.
