Hornet claims to be the # 1 gay social network. It enables men to connect in more meaningful ways than just dating and hookups. It is "a community that comes together around shared experience and common interests". Besides its online dating functions, the main website also supplies a platform with original, though-provoking content tailored for gay and bi men. The app is available in numerous languages other than English like Japanese, Polish, Afrikaans, Indonesian, Simplified Chinese, and so much more. Since its launch in 2011, Hornet has gained 25 million users worldwide.
