Story

My Ladyboy Date was founded in 2013 by French entrepreneur Cyril Mazur and Filipino beauty queen Maki Gingoyon.

Maki and Cyril were both unimpressed with the current online dating experience for transgender women and the men who like them, so they founded My Ladyboy Date in order to empower every transgender woman to lead a more fulfilling love life.

As of 2020 there are 20 team members working on My Ladyboy Date, most of them are transgender women.

Terminology

A transgender woman (also called trans woman, transsexual woman, male-to-female transsexual) is a woman who was assigned male at birth. In other terms, a transgender woman was born in a man's body but identifies herself as a woman, and usually undertakes to transform her body to make it match with her gender identity.

A trans oriented man (also called trans attracted) is a man who is romantically attracted to transgender women.

Ladyboy is a colloquial term employed mainly in Thailand, the Philippines and other South East Asian countries to refer to transgender women.
