After three weeks of ongoing dialog, GetGayFunded.com and Amazon Payments have reached a mutual agreement that has re-established Amazon Payments as the funding processor for LGBT projects listed on Apps Genius Corp’s GetGayFunded.com crowdfunding website. The site went live again on March 9 th, said Adam Kotkin, chief executive officer of Apps Genius Corp (OTCQB: APGS), the company that developed and operates GetGayFunded.com.
In addition to re-establishing funding processing, Amazon Payments also agreed to continue processing nearly $7,000 of funds that had been pledged for nearly two dozen LGBT projects before GetGayFunded.com went dark on February 19 th.
GetGayFunded.com uses Apps Genius’ proprietary crowdfunding platform and is specifically designed to meet the unique crowdfunding needs of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community. The site is a place where both businesses and individuals can post their projects and others have the opportunity to pledge to projects they find interesting or beneficial.
“It was very important for us to work with Amazon Payments to process the money that had been pledged for those projects already,” said Kotkin. “We appreciate the tremendous outpouring of support from the public to get our website back online and we are grateful to Amazon Payments for working through this issue so GetGayFunded.com can go back to work providing much-needed funding support for LGBT community projects.”
