Poppenreiter is not new to the app game. Last year, she launched an app called Peppr which connected people to prostitutes. She discontinued the controversial app because the model of on-demand prostitutes did not work out. She said that there weren't enough connections so people waiting a couple of hours would give up using the app. Ohlala only lets men seek for paid dates with women. She said this was a better move because on Peppr "there was not a single booking from women. They write emails for a while, and then meet men offline. Ohlala has raised a small amount of early investment funds but the co-founder did not reveal how much because it was confidential.
She said she is currently in talks to raise another round which would be "over 1 million dollars.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau directed Justice Minister David Lametti, in the mandate letter Lametti received last month , to find a way to ban conversion therapy. And the Liberals, in the platform that won them the October election , vowed to end the restrictions men who have sex with men face if they try to donate blood.
But, as Egale highlighted in its response to the recently published mandate letters given to every minister , there are many other issues of importance to the LGBTQ2 community. And, for now at least, the Trudeau government no longer has a special advisor for that community, a role played by Edmonton MP Randy Boissonnault in the last Parliament.
Boissonnault lost his seat last month and Trudeau has not named a new special advisor. The PCO poll has not been published but pages of raw polling data on several topics was recently released to Global News as a result of a federal access-to-information request.
