GALPAL held an official launch party at the Huntley Hotel Santa Monica on Thursday (July 28) in Santa Monica, California.

The event featured a champagne lunch, cocktails, MAC makeovers, manicures by Merrick Fisher, and more. Notable celebs in attendance included Perez Hilton and Alessandra Torresani from The Big Bang Theory. 

The new friendship app is bridging the gap between LGBTQ and straight communities. GALPAL is the first app of its kind, created to help foster friendships and acceptance independent of sexual orientation. The app opens the door to a relationship devoted to friendship not sex, loyalty not heartbreak, GALPAL is about trust and mutual support, ultimately aiming to develop stronger alliances between the gay and straight community. GALPAL is now available for free on iOS in the App Store. 

GALPAL Founder Jasmine Sassounian says, “We believe that love takes on every shape and form, we need to celebrate the type of love that transcends sex and traditional romantic relationships. Whether it be between a straight woman and a gay man, straight man and a gay woman, or between an individual questioning their sexuality seeking platonic companionship, GALPAL seeks to create those meaningful connections by bringing people together who may not have otherwise had the opportunity to meet.”

GALPAL Partner Ian Maxion added, “What drew me to GALPAL is the company’s objective to bridge the gap between the LGBT and the straight community. It’s a safe and fun place for people to connect with the simple basis of being who you truly are.”
