SCRUFF is the top-rated, safest and most reliable app for gay, bi, trans and queer guys to connect. Founded in 2010, SCRUFF is an independently owned and operated GBTQ business, headquartered in New York City. The app connects more than 12M guys in 180 countries to friends, dates, hookups, events, travel advice and more. In an effort to provide a safe and secure platform for its users (of which 90 percent live in rural areas where being gay isn't widely accepted), and the best user experience, SCRUFF recently stopped working with third party ad networks, removing all programmatic advertisements from its platform. This makes SCRUFF the only social app to do so.
Moving forward, SCRUFF will work solely with select advertising partners specifically for the GBTQ community, including non-profit organizations, advocacy groups, health institutes, and travel and lifestyle brands.
