Raya was launched in 2015 in West Hollywood, California. Of course it was spawned in the LA area, global epicenter of shallow fads.
Raya is an iOs app only for the uber-rich and dubiously famous (aka: you won’t be getting approved for membership).
The app filters matches by age, gender, occupation.
It also functions as a private global social network like a Shadow Facebook and is often called the Illuminati Tinder.
To be admitted to membership, you have to have a referral from an existing member, then you will be waitlisted for dramatic effect, then you will be admitted entry.
And then eventually, you’ll delete it because you find it’s a disappointing magnet for scheming, manipulative gold diggers who are unworthy of your time and money. Classic L.A. baby.
