Press & media

My Transgender Date is the leading dating platform for transgender women and trans oriented men looking for love, available in 11 languages with members in 190 countries.

The platform stands out for the quality of the interactions that its members make every day, and the high standards that the 24/7 moderation team maintains.

It also aims to break stereotypes, normalise transgender relationships and spread the message that love knows no gender.


My Transgender Date was founded in 2013 by French entrepreneur Cyril Mazur and Filipino beauty queen Maki Gingoyon.

Maki and Cyril were both unimpressed with the current online dating experience for transgender women and the men who like them, so they founded My Transgender Date in order to empower every transgender woman to lead a more fulfilling love life.

As of 2022 there are 20 team members working on My Transgender Date, most of them are transgender women.

A transgender woman (also called trans woman, transsexual woman, male-to-female transsexual) is a woman who was assigned male at birth. In other terms, a transgender woman was born in a man's body but identifies herself as a woman, and usually undertakes to transform her body to make it match with her gender identity.

A trans oriented man (also called trans attracted) is a man who is romantically attracted to transgender women.

Ladyboy is a colloquial term employed mainly in Thailand, the Philippines and other South East Asian countries to refer to transgender women.
