Meeting ladyboys in Davao

Davao is a great place to visit and live especially if you’re looking to date ladyboys. Like most of the Philippines, Davao is home to many ladyboys. You can easily bump into them at the malls, restaurants, and bars. This is because of the Philippines history of recognising third gender identies such as the umbrella term bakla.

The Philippines is somewhat accommodating to ladyboys as compared to other Asian nations. However, LGBT rights here are still quite limited.

The term ladyboy is not appreciated by everyone. We use it on this page for educational purposes. For a detailed explanation, please read our dedicated page on the term “ladyboy”.

Getting to know ladyboys in Davao

Like many other ladyboys in the Philippines, ladyboys in Davao face significant challenges. They often face discrimination and are subjected to harassment and violence. A ladyboy’s experience in the Philippines can vary. They may be accepted by their families or not. Many turn to their ladyboy friends and trans allies for support.
