Ms. Spindel, who’s been helping men find brides for nearly 20 years, is just 11 couples shy of fostering 1,000 marriages. She wants at least half of those 11 going forward to be same-sex. “How awesome would that be?” she crowed.
Matchmaker Janis Spindel is seeking single gay men. With the passage of the Marriage Equality Act in New York, the high-end yenta has decided to launch a gay division. “Now is the time to rally,” she said. “I’ve officially gone gay.”
Ms. Spindel has already signed up eight clients. And with fees starting at $100,000, that’s a nice boost to her business.
Lesbians, however, need not apply. Ms. Spindel is maintaining the same business model she follows with straights: she only accepts male clients. “I’m sticking with what I do best—working with men,” she said.
