Who are we ?

Right now, we’re a staff of two, I’d like to introduce myself (Simon) and M, we will both be contributing to the site and moderating the form, hopefully we will add some more great people to the staff roster in the future.

Simon –

I’m an IT guy who’s based in London in the UK, I can sometimes be found in Birmingham too.  I developed my attraction to trans-women around the age of 12. I started to explore that attraction properly in my early 20’s.  I didn’t really tell anyone about it until the age of 29, that’s a secret that I carried for a good 17 years.

I know how heavy  a secret like that can become when it follows you everywhere, I’d like other guys to consider me as someone they can talk to when they have no one else to confide in, I’d also like our forum to become somewhere that is safe and open for us to talk.

M and I both feel that there isn’t enough information out there on real trans-women issues and that guys are often unaware of the realities they face.

M –

I’m not a fan of labels, however, for the sake of introductions I am a post-op transsexual. Having began my transition in my teens, I have spent over a decade becoming the woman I am today.

A full-time student, I lead a simple life free of the drama and dissillusion I created for myself in my younger years while transitioning. I do not claim to be an expert on the topic of gender dysphoria, sexual orientation or attraction, I am here only to share my experiences in the hope that others may find them useful.

Dating in general is tough, dating as a teenager is harrowing, dating as a teenager while transiting is excruciating. It’s difficult to know what to look for in a partner when you still don’t know yourself.

What is TransAttraction?

So what is TransAttraction anyway? Simply put, it’s a heterosexual males attraction towards transgender women.  Don’t worry, you aren’t alone, there are other guys out there who feel exactly the same way you do.

I know that this isn’t the easiest thing for a guy to figure out on his own, I also know it can be pretty hard  when you don’t have anyone to talk to or relate to, for this reason I created TransAttraction.com.

I’d likeTransAttraction to feel like a safe environment for guys to talk about their attractions, learn more about the women they are attracted to and pickup some correct terminology along the way.

When I first published my article in 2014 titled – My Attraction to Transgender women shouldn’t be a secret, it was the first most of my friends and family knew about the way I felt and how long I’d kept it a secret.

I got some great feedback from friends, I had a few guys get in touch and tell me they had the same feelings but didn’t really feel like they had anyone to talk to.  I also posted the article on reddit and got a few replies with what felt like hostile undertones, it wasn’t conducive to me sharing openly and at that time I wished I hadn’t because of the comments.

With that said, I want the TransAttraction website be a safe place for guys to talk about things, we’re not going to tell you off for using the wrong words, we will gently correct you.  Learn about some of the issues trans-women face today and some of the challenges that still exist for them.

We’re not going to be colour blind for want of a better term and pretend that there are no differences between trans-women and cis-women, there are differences, but most of the guys reading this have already realized or will soon realize that these differences should be celebrated and embraced as a good thing.

I’m not talking about the physical differences here, I’m talking about the important stuff, a trans-woman might understand you as a guy better than any cis-woman, she might even watch star-wars and play the xbox with you, be your favorite geek, she’s been there and done that – think about the possibilities.

Be the best guy you can be 🙂
