Grindr exec quits after company presidents’s anti-marriage equality comments

NEW YORK — An executive at gay app Grindr announced his resignation on a Medium.com post over the weekend, just under two weeks after anti-marriage equality statements were made by the app’s president. Landen Rafe Zumwalt said he was resigning as the app’s head of communications. Although Zumwalt didn’t expressly say his resignation was because of the comments, his references to his relationship do seem to suggest it was the trigger for his leaving. From his post:

As an out and proud gay man madly in love with a man I don’t deserve, I refused to compromise my own values or professional integrity to defend a statement that goes against everything I am and everything I believe. While that resulted in my time at Grindr being cut short, I have absolutely no regrets.
