The Butterfly™ Dating Platform Allows Transgender Singles to Enjoy Both Fun and Freedom – DatingNews
More than 1.4 million Americans — or 0.6% of U.S. adults — identify as transgender, according to a recent analysis conducted by UCLA’s Williams Institute School of Law. In some areas of the country — including Hawaii, California, New Mexico, and Georgia — the transgender population is larger. In other places, including North Dakota, Iowa, Montana, South Dakota, and Wyoming, that community is smaller.
But the study makes one thing clear: People who don’t identify as men or women live in every city and town in America. In fact, 0.7% of adults ages 18 to 24 and 0.5% of those 65 and older identify as transgender.
Despite the estimated transgender population in the country doubling in the last decade, some transgender singles say they still find online dating challenging. Part of the reason is the lingering stigma and confusion that members of the transgender community know well.
That’s what Butterfly, a dating app available to anyone who identifies as transgender or is open to dating someone who identifies as transgender, was designed to eliminate.
That means no more worrying about an uncomfortable conversation on a first date that may or may not end well. The app’s profiles are flexible, allowing members to identify as any sexual orientation or gender.
