Turkey Bans Grindr

Turkish LGBT rights group Kaos GL reports on its website:
Dating app Grindr, used by gay, bisexual and curious men, has been censored in Turkey. The app cannot be accessed since yesterday evening. İstanbul Anatolia 14th Criminal Court of Peace blocked off Grindr as a “protection measure.” Kaos GL Association's Lawyer Hayriye Kara said it is very likely that the decision might be related to "general morality", an ambiguous term used often against trans sex workers.
