Ashley Madison was founded in 2001 to facilitate extramarital affairs, with the tagline "Life is short. Have an affair." It now has over 60 million user accounts globally.

Data on LGBTQ users is limited, but the former CEO estimated around 15% identified as gay/bisexual in 2015. Some user reviews mention a gay presence.

While LGBTQ-specific apps exist, some gay users may prefer Ashley Madison's mainstream positioning for confidential affairs. "As someone married and closeted, I felt more comfortable here," said one user.

Privacy is a major draw, allowing users to hide identities. This discreet approach could appeal to LGBTQ users fearing being outed, though critics say the marketing assumes a straight user base.

The company argues it simply facilitates affairs regardless of orientation. But GLAAD says the branding "screams this is for cheating straight spouses" and excludes LGBTQ perspectives.

In summary, some LGBTQ presence exists on Ashley Madison, but many criticize the narrow marketing focus on straight affairs as non-inclusive.
