Rebel Wilson is launching a new queer dating app called Fluid. The 42 year old queer actor and comedian recently spoke to People about her exciting new venture, and why it’s especially important to her.
“This is the first dating app where you don’t have to actually define yourself or tick a box to say ‘I’m straight, I’m gay, I’m bisexual,’ and you don’t have to describe what you are looking for. […] It’s kind of love with no labels,” Wilson told People.
“I never thought I was 100 percent straight,” said Wilson, who is dating jewelry designer Ramona Agruma. She said that the app will be open to everybody, regardless of labels.
“The algorithm just picks up who you are vibing with and how much time you spend on certain profiles and it’s open enough so that if your sexuality moves into a different direction, it will follow because of what you are preferring on the app. The algorithm works on interests as well,” she told People.
Wilson says she wishes that she had an app like Fluid five years ago. “Something like this would have really helped me and maybe I would have stumbled upon a female’s profile and been like, ‘OK, maybe I do want to message them.’ I totally would have joined up for Fluid because you don’t have to label yourself in any way. You just see who you connect with. […] I know that, to me, it doesn’t matter about the gender, it just matters about the person.”
Fluid is great for those who, like Wilson, don’t want to define their sexuality. “I don’t quite know how to define my sexuality, but I do know there’s a lot of people out there that don’t want to totally define it either,” she told People.
Fluid will be available in the App Store later this month.
