With this move to more mainstream venues, dovetails perfectly with the subject's newfound popularity and my desire to help trans-sexuality to become a normal part of contemporary culture.Forums and social networks enable people to come together around shared interests and causes.In all honesty, I'm an old fashioned kind of guy and the categories of Male, Female, FTM and MTF seemed to work fine for me.
As my work progressed I began to focus on education and advocacy by doing workshops, seminars, and speaking engagements.
I used myself as talent, in part because no other transmen were ready to publicly show their sex lives onscreen.
It took years to build to this point where finding FTM talent and others to work with us is no longer a challenge.
This created some interesting challenges with the usual format of a dating website.
Fortunately, my partner in this venture, The Dating Factory, has been very accommodating and worked with me to add more classifications to fit with some of the newer terminology that is being used.
