Popular Chinese lesbian dating app, Rela, suddenly goes offline

Rela (热拉), a popular lesbian dating app from China, has suddenly gone dark.

People are speculating that the app has been blocked by the country's notorious content censors, after its participation in an LGBTQ awareness event in Shanghai recently.

The app, which was launched in 2012, has around five million registered users, as a cached version of its iTunes app description showed, according to Reuters.

Users have reported that the app, along with its social media Weibo account, have been blocked:
