What Transoriented Means

To be transoriented means that a person has preferential or stronger attraction, in regards to emotional, romantic and sexual feelings towards transgendered people. While this site mainly focuses on transoriented (TO) men who prefer trans women (TW), the term transoriented could be used to refer to trans women, trans men or cis women who are predominantly attracted to a trans man or trans woman.

While attractions are complex and diversity amongst people and what attracts them could require a library of categories to account for all people, TO men represent a significant and increasingly self-aware segment of society. This website intends to aggregate and make sense of the nature of TO men and the diversity within that umbrella term, in the hope that it can lead to a greater understanding and acceptance of TO men and that it can provide support and education to TO men, their partners, their families and friends.

Various terms have been used to categorize TO men, including trans-attracted as well as derogatory terms like tranny-chasers, tranny-admirers and transfans. The clinical term gynandromorphophilia has also been used, inferring a medical condition. It’s time we worked toward a better understanding of transoriented men.
