This Valentine’s Day I wanted to revisit an old post which fills me with joy every time I feel a bit down. When I invited members of the twittersphere to share their trans love stories and I was overwhelmed by the response. Here are just a handful of real-life examples of happy couples in love, where one of them just happens to be trans… If you have a story you’d like to share we’d love to hear it! Just post it in the comments or tag us on Twitter where you’ll find us @gendergp.


Being trans does not stop us from finding love. It may throw in an additional layer of complexity but that should not prevent people from taking a risk – after all, who can say that their own love story is 100% risk free?

Love can be painful and it can be cruel but it can also be wonderful, giving us hope and showing us that we can be accepted and appreciated for who we are.

A huge thank you to all those who were generous enough to share their stories – they offer irrefutable proof that trans love is not only possible but it is just as real and valid as any other love.
