GALPAL is finally here, and the exciting new app kicked off it’s launch with an epic star-studded party including Alessandra Torresani and more. Click inside for details about the bash!
On Thursday, July 28, Jasmine Sassounian and her partner, Ian Maxion, launched the very exciting GALPAL app in collaboration with #RestInPride at The Penthouse Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica. Guests included The Big Bang Theory star Alessandra Torresani, as well as Jason Lee, Ballers star Donovan W. Carter, Dorian Renaud, Miles Brock, EJ King, Durrani Popal, Stephanie De Souza and Hazel E.
The celebrity guests were treated to lunch and champagne, all in the name of GALPAL, which is a new friendship app that connects men and women seeking platonic relationships by matching straight and gay relationships. It’s a really exciting concept, and will hopefully help foster friendships and acceptance as well as help those in need build a strong support system of friends. GALPAL is the first app of it’s kind, and unlike many of it’s competitors it’s not for hooking up or going on dates.
GALPAL was founded by creator Jasmine in 2015, and was inspired by her own real-life friendships with gay men. Jasmine is really hoping that GALPAL will inspire others to find meaningful friendships without judgment or prejudice in the LGBQT community, which is really exciting!
The launch party was a total success, and aside from lunch guests were treated to manicures by Merrick Fisher, MAC makeup, and a fun photobooth!
