Lesbian Nightlife in Vancouver: Yes it Exists!
One evening, Vancouver entrepreneur Jacqueline Clarke hung out with a gay male friend who was "constantly Grinding". Her friend—for those not yet in the know—wasn't doing anything physical. Well, not quite yet. He was using Grindr, the popular social-networking application that helps men seeking men find available guys in close proximity, on his cellphone. Consequently, Clarke wondered why there isn't one for girls. Clarke is tired of the stereotype that women attracted to women aren't as interested in hooking up as other gender-coupling configurations. And that's just not true…. That I personally do think is kind of boring.
