From The Information Society Series. An examination of dating app culture in China, across user demographics—straight women, straight men, queer women, and queer men. The open access edition of this book was made possible by generous funding from Arcadia — a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin. In this exploration of dating app culture in China, Lik Sam Chan argues that these popular mobile apps are not merely a platform for personal relationships but also an emerging arena for gender and queer politics. Chan examines the opportunities dating apps present for women's empowerment and men's performances of masculinity, and he links experiences of queer dating app users with their vulnerable position as sexual minorities.
