So you have found a new guy that is showing interest in you. That is great, but don’t let the euphoria cloud your judgement when determining if this person is right for you. Unfortunately when you are a trans woman not all potential partners are what they seem. There are men out there who will let you hang around socially, but still be hyper-focused on your gender. There are ‘nice’ chasers out there who will enjoy being with you for a moment, but already have it in their minds to end up making a life with a cis woman. For a short fling or a one-night thing, these guys may be fine. But if you’re looking for a partner, how do you evaluate whether or not your new guy is long term material and not a chaser?

We were out at the 2019 LA Pride Parade in West Hollywood yesterday. It was a beautiful day of celebrating in the sun. The parade had almost 200 floats and groups marching all showing their support for the LGBTQ community. It was great to see all the transgender flags flying throughout the day. There were a good number of children flying transgender flags which was especially great. The big Hollywood companies and studios were represented along with a number of other large companies such as Amazon, Delta, Bank of America and Chase. Interesting to us were that both Lyft and Uber chose to focus specifically on gender identity for their floats. Anytime the transgender community is put at the forefront it is great for everyone.
There were a couple of highlights for us. One was the contingent from the TV show Pose. They handed out beautiful hand fans with the number 10 on it. There were some fabulous people werking it on stilts leading the way, seriously how do you do high kicks on stilts, followed by a float with a full on walk off show. Another contingent that we loved seeing was the Black Diamonds Drill Team and Drum Squad. They were led by a wonderful woman carrying a transgender flag. Their marchers had signs with a picture of Marsha P. Johnson honoring the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots while wearing shirts that said stronger together. The most impressive part was the performance they did over and over along the way. Every time they stopped and performed they received a huge much deserved round of applause. Here are some pictures and videos we took. Hope you enjoy them and if you are looking for a new Pride parade to attend next year we highly recommend the LA Pride parade in West Hollywood.

Since gender dysphoria is such a common experience for trans people, it becomes a kind of standard by which we end up evaluating our partners. How a person treats me while I am experiencing dysphoria is a pretty quick indication of whether or not they deserve to be in my life. It doesn’t mean that my partners are responsible for fixing these feelings, but if they can’t offer me positive space and support while I’m struggling, then I know I’m better off without them.

As a bisexual trans guy, I use all the apps and dating sites when looking for a potential mate. Most of these sites are filled with cisgender (non trans people) who don’t know much about trans men. I think people get nervous when they don’t feel secure in understanding how to date someone. Personally, I don’t think folks should over think it. Over thinking leads to some repetitive question asking that trans guys are tired of hearing when dating. Here’s a few things to avoid when perusing a trans man.

False Perceptions of Transgender Women
Some people need to change their idea of who transgender women are. Just because a woman has a penis doesn’t mean she wants to use it on people or is attracted to everything with two legs . They think like women, some are straight, bi, and lesbian . First you need to read their profile and if it is not specified, ask them and then respect their answer. Trans women are not sex objects that fuck everything on earth. The best thing you can do is read their profile and respect them.
