Interested in dating a trans person in Bangkok? You’re not alone. You can meet ladyboys in lots of places in this city – completely normal places like cafes and malls or even while using public transport. You’ll see them working regular jobs like everyone else.

If you’re very serious about meeting someone, groups on Meetup are a better option than clubs and pubs. This platform has thousands of users who welcome and support members of the trans community. Groups organize fun events for LGBTQ people quite often, at which you can meet and talk to people in a welcoming environment.

Of course, anyone trying to find their way through the city’s at times complex trans culture will have considered an online dating site at least once. The most popular ones are international sites like My Ladyboy Date and My Transsexual Date. They were both founded by the same person. The organizations state their goal clearly: bringing quality men and trans women together. It’s free to sign up. You’ll see thousands of profiles of trans women looking for relationships and much more here. What you won’t see is offensive slogans like dating Bangkok shemales and the like.

Websites and online groups aren’t the only way to meet transsexual people in Bangkok. If you think trans men might be your thing, you’d be surprised to learn a couple of unique gyms opened here in recent years, the best known being Transfit. This gym is owned and staffed by transgender men, but it’s open to everyone who wants to work out and socialize in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere. The owner of Transfit is something of a local celebrity. The gym offers mostly private training sessions at the moment. There are plans to open new locations shortly as well.

Navigating the scene really isn’t that complicated. It’s enough to know what kind of relationship and person you’re looking for.
