A Threat to Sue That Changed the Dating Game

July 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Sinakhone Keodara has volunteered his time and lent his talents to various social justice causes ranging from advocating for removing Unexploded Ordnance from the Vietnam War era from his home country to the gay marriage fight in America to other multiple social justice issues. Sinakhone founded BodiGuard in 2021 in response to an onslaught of anti-Asian hate attacks. His mission is to provide protectors for vulnerable individuals and small businesses as they move through their lives.

In 2018, he threatened to sue Grindr for allowing the proliferation of sexual racism against gay Asians that culminated in the dating app industry changing its user guidelines to ban discriminatory language from their user profiles.
