Virtual Speed Dating is here!

lgbtq community matchmaking

AYA is the first queer online speed dating event that aims to bring together people from the queer community. It is a well-organized process where you get to meet up with new people, chat and check if there’s any chemistry between you two or not. Queer speed dating is a formalized matchmaking process designed to bring together people for the purposes of developing human relationships with the aim of forming longer-term romantic or sexual relationships. It organizes single people in an orderly manner, giving them very short periods of time to get to know each other. The organizers have designed it in such a way that everyone can get an equal chance of meeting someone they like.

How it works

  • Attendees will be paired up and face each other. An online event has a host who will guide you through the proceedings and let you know when it’s time to switch. 
  • Instead of sitting across from each participant, you’ll be given a few minutes in a private chat room with each of them, with a break to take notes or to collect your thoughts in between. 
  • Because of the short time frame, you won’t be trapped with somebody you don’t get along with. However, you have plenty of time to figure it out.
