Small LGBTQ Dating Site fighting Goliath

Hello, I am Sean, from (be true be you), I have created a dating site for women in the LGBTQ+ community  that are out  and want to get more out of their relationships. I am fundraising to upgrade the site and put the majority of it in advertising.

As a small business owner advertising is hard but as a LGBTQ business it has new challenges. I have been denied ads because of " nonsensical lettering" which was LGBTQ. One large Social media platform would not allow advertising because it stated I was a group sex site which is not true.  Those sites exist but  my site was built to focus on communication in relationships not just physical attributes. I can only assume because it was LGBTQ they made an assumption about us as a people. I can't advertise on another big  platform because it's owned by the previous platform mentioned.

Anyway, because of this I have lost. I did however get approved by TikTok and now am able to run ads! The focus now is to update my site with 4 new features that will create more ways to interact on the site  and advertise to a more strategically focused audience for the next 6 months. I understand  new businesses struggle and this is the battle I have chosen. But it's been 2.5 years and  do not want to give up. I would just like the chances that everyone else  gets. I'm trying to improve dating for women in the LGBTQ community and move away from stereotypical dating  sites they think we all want. 

If you are thinking a dating site is not important we are in a time right now of Covid and we were  already in a space where it's hard to meet new people to bring into our lives. I don't offer fake promises of finding the one . I'm improving my space to offer chances for friendships to form that could possibly bring love to someone that needs it. Community or having a tribe is important.
