About us equal rights for transgender women, it’s also the right to quality dating
My Ladyboy Date is an international dating service designed exclusively for transgender women, also commonly called “ladyboys” in Southeast Asia (countries famous for having the highest population of trans women in the world)
Our mission is to provide a quality and decent dating service for transgender women and the men who know how to appreciate them. We are against the current bad image of transgender women reflected by the internet, giving the idea that they are always related to porn or prostitution. There are very few decent websites and resources online made for transgender women and “transoriented men”. In particular, there is no dating site for transgender women in which the sexual aspect is not played, and that’s the reason we decided to open My Ladyboy Date.
We believe that through education and decent services (such as this website), we can make a difference in how society views transgender women (as well as their friends and lovers). We believe that we are providing the best dating experience in the world for transgender women / transoriented men and that this is what they were all waiting for.
Our little team is made up exclusively of trans women (to the exception of the leader of the project, who is a French young man engaged to a trans woman) and is based entirely in the Philippines (Manila and Cebu). We ensure the development, moderation and communication of the website.
We’d like to use this space on the page to thank all of our friends from everywhere in the world who are supporting us and showing us so much love, even though we haven’t met most of them in person. They are part of the project and we can never thank them enough. Thank you!
The idea of making a decent website for trans women to form loving relationships came from personal observation. Not a single dating site presented trans women in a decent way. Instead they were presented as similar to porn stars or prostitutes. Profiles had nude photos, scammers and sex-workers. Decent trans women stay away from those websites, or bitterly decide to join because they have no other choice. The consequence is that many transoriented men (and society) have the misconception that trans women are related to prostitution and pornography.
2011 — It starts with a book
Based on his own personal story and experience, Cyril Mazur wrote and published a book for men who, like him, want to find love with a ladyboy. The book is the only resource of its kind. It helps many transoriented men understand more about themselves and transgender women. It works as a guide to help find true love with a transgender woman.
2012 — First decent community for transgender women and transoriented men
Motivated by the good feedback from his readers, Cyril created a Facebook community of transgender women and transoriented men. The goal: to provide a decent space for people to discuss topics of love and relationships with transgender women, as well as discuss transgender rights. This became the first community of its kind, where porn and escorts were strictly banned.
2013 — MyLadyboyDate opens
The book and Facebook experience showed that transgender women are poorly represented online. That’s how the idea of launching a decent dating service was born. After a few months of development, My Ladyboy Date went public in March 2013.
2014 — MyTranssexualDate opens
One year after, we opened our second site, My Transsexual Date, aimed at western transsexual women. We came to realize that western transsexual women absolutely don’t recognized themselves in the name “ladyboy”. While in Asia this is a common word in everyday life, in the west the name is rather associated with pornography and prostitution. Hence our decision to open a second brand, where our western members will not have the cultural shock they’re having with My Ladyboy Date.
