Zoe Belle Gender Collective
Transfemme is an Australian website designed to promote healthier relationships between trans women and cisgender men. This website has been created by the Zoe Belle Gender Collective in collaboration with a collective of Victorian-based trans women and cis men who have experience in dating or are in relationships with trans women. The content is based on the collective’s own lived experiences and is drawn from 30 confidential interviews conducted in mid 2021.
Our target audience is cisgender men who may identify as straight, heteroflexible, within the bi plus community or use no labels at all. We acknowledge that men who identify as transgender, gay or homosexual may also have relationships or hook-up with transgender women. This resource was formed out of community consultation conducted with trans women and cisgender men.
It was created to address the need for resources aimed at straight or bi+ cisgender men who are attracted to transgender women, celebrating their relationships whilst also addressing societal stigma and shame which are drivers of violence towards trans women. However, any other audiences who can gain insight into how to be respectful partners to trans women and prevent transphobic violence and discrimination are more than welcome to access it.inclus
The resource contains content that may be considered sensitive including sex, objectification, and fetishisation and body dysphoria. Please access the referral section if any of the content causes distress or if you would like further support.
