Gaypon on Tuesday announced it had launched its daily deals site.

The site promises to offer coupons and discounts from gay-friendly businesses and donate a portion of its profits to national LGBT organizations and charities, including The Trevor Project and Affirmations.

“Gaypon gives you the opportunity to receive awesome discounts on everything from dining, nightlife and entertainment to the latest gadgets, fashion and fitness,” said Gaypon Founder & CEO Robert Graham. “You don't have to be part of the LGBT community to participate with Gaypon. Our online community is a place where individuals who believe in equal and fair employment practices can find great deals and support businesses that share the same philosophy.”

The company states that merchants must meet certain requirements in order to participate.

“Before a business can become a participating merchant, Gaypon performs a background check for complaints of discrimination and/or poor hiring practices. Gaypon also uses additional tools to evaluate potential businesses for corporate policies and practices such as the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) Corporate Equality Index, which rates American businesses on LGBT equality,” the company said.

Robert Graham and Jason Buszta founded Gaypon, which is based in West Bloomfield, Michigan.
