What is Thurst?

Thurst is a dating app for queer people of all genders. We aim to create an inclusive, affirming space for the queer community to connect.


We believe that love, both interpersonal and collective, requires justice - our aim is to make an online space where historically underrepresented and discriminated peoples can feel more seen, heard, and affirmed.
