contact application. This article proposes, based on an anthropo-semmiotic approach, to describe self-presentation logics (ethos; Goffman, 1959; Amossy, (2010) deployed by users of the Grindr contact application, through speeches and figuration choices and to study their articulation with the praxis. These results come from a doctoral research that takes into account more broadly the ways to say homosexual, from the 1930s to the present. With this in mind, I propose that the following questions be answered: What are the narrative practices within the Grindr application? What are the forms and role of these semiotic performances? And finally, how does it help to define one way of being or not among others?
