Not everyone knows this but French men love trans women. Not all of them are very open about it. But, some of them do not hide that fact. They are rather happy and proud to have a beautiful trans woman by their side.
Do you live in Paris and would like to meet a trans woman? Or are you a transgender woman who wants to find your man in the City of Love? Let’s explore this together, shall we?
Paris, where you need to be
France is not the most tolerant country when it comes to acceptance of transgender women. However, trans women can still speak out freely and without fear. You can definitely meet trans people in France and its big cities.
But for gentlemen seeking out transgender women, the best place to go is Paris. It is after all a big cosmopolitan city filled with open-minded, avant-garde people.
Our site, however, does not promote encounters with workers of the Bois de Boulogne. There are many other sites that cater to that. However, if you are here, we understand that it is because you are rather interested in serious meetings/relationships with “everyday” transgender women.
Trans meeting places in Paris
Paris is a city with a large and active LGBTTQ+ community. Bumping into a beautiful trans woman who might be interested in meeting men who want serious relationships is far from impossible. Men who are open to this type of relationship are equally found here. But first we have to know where to meet them in the city. Here are some of the places to consider when you want with trans women or trans-oriented individuals.
Workshow Paris (Bar - Club)

Easier dating thanks to the internet
Unlike in Thailand or the Philippines, in France it is not so easy to meet trans women “the old-fashioned way”. We are talking about an encounter in everyday life, in a café, in a shopping center or in the street. For those gentlemen looking to bump into transgender women on every street corner, I would rather recommend a trip to Thailand. This is why the Internet has become the primary tool for this type of encounter.
Firstly, it can break down inhibitions, shyness, or any other form of apprehension. These attitudes mightall too often prevent a man, or a trans woman, from flirting directly in the street.
Secondly, it allows access to a large number of profiles, all with just one click of a button! This surely beats all the encounters you can possibly make in the street or in a club!
Thanks to the internet, it has never been easier to find trans women and trans oriented men near you.
