Gay to transexual dating for
Finding love using online dating apps and services can be tough, and even dangerous for anyone who’s not straight and cisgender (those who don’t identify as transgender).
Yes, there are apps for gay men, like Grindr and Scruff, and one for queer women called Her. Enter Thurst, a dating app for queer, trans and gender non-conforming people.
Hinge, another popular dating app, also only offers “woman” and “man” as gender options.I’ve reached out to both Tinder and Hinge about safeguards for trans people using their apps and why they don’t offer other ways for people to express their genders.I’ll update this story if I hear back from Tinder and Hinge.But much like the general population, most people in the gay and lesbian community did not understand that, while the prejudices were similar, the underlying issue is quite different. So when the missions were expanded, many gays and lesbians innocently continued saying that their organizations "serve the needs of all gay Americans." Many still do say this.The result is that many Americans who have heard the word transgender think it means another kind of gay.
