LGBTQ couples who found love on Tinder could win a dream wedding

Post your love story to Instagram with #TinderSuccessStory.

Have you swiped right and found real, lasting love?

Well, you might be able to win the wedding of your dreams.

Believe it or not, all types of couples really do find love on Tinder. But since it's Pride month, the dating app is celebrating the rainbow with a contest just for LGBTQ couples that met through the service.

To enter, people can simply share their love story on Instagram using the hashtag #TinderSuccessStory – click that link to read some of the submissions.

The winners will be announced July 5 and score a cool $100,000 for wedding expenses.

About 10 million Americans identify as LGBTQ, Gallup found in a poll this year. That’s about 4.1 percent of the country, and up from 8.3 million in 2012. Young people make up the biggest share of that: 7.3 percent say they identify as LGBTQ – way higher than any other age group.

And Tinder has noticed. Last fall, the app became more inclusive by offering new gender identity options.
