  • Targeting Grindr users in Prahran electorate - known as the 'pink seat'
  • Grindr is a smartphone app to facilitate casual sex for gay men
  • Candidate Sam Hibbins' first message is an invitation to a popular gay bar to meet with himself and Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young
  • Hibbins expects other parties will use the same strategy this election
