Luna Ray, founder and CEO, Bloom Community provides an app that helps members of queer and ethically non-monogamous communities build connections and relationships and find events. The app works by inviting users to introduce themselves, tailor their interests and preferences, and find people that accept them for what they are. They then pick a scene, whether it be speed dating, connection workshops, festivals, or tailored bars, and Bloom ensures people will have no more missed connections.

The company currently operates in San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, and San Diego and has partnerships with San Francisco Pride, Woodhull Freedom Foundation, SF LGBT Center, Comfort & Joy, SoulPlay, Folsom Street, Wicked Grounds, Public Works, along with many other leading organizations. Launched in September 2021, Bloom Community has had over 3,000 community events connecting over 60,000 people.
