Is it even possible to do this? Yes, even though nobody knows how many trans people live in the emirate. According to experts, around one percent of the world’s population is transgender, which leads us to conclude that 1% of people who live here must be members of this community. That said, it could only be a matter of time before your first TS date in Dubai.

Where to Pick up Trans Singles

Before the “how”, there’s the “where.” We’ll begin with a list of the top spots to pick up girls in the city. These include 1 Oak at Sheikh Zayed Rd, the Marriot, Prive in Armani Hotel, Cirque Le Soir at Fairmont Hotel, Barasti Beach at the resort Mina Seyahi, Atelier M by Marina Mall, Zero Gravity Dubai at Al Sufouh Rd, Skydive Dubai, and White Dubai at Nad Al Sheba 1. One recent addition to the list is Nola Social House.

The above-named spots are elite and a bit pricey due to this. For budget-friendlier options, try the Huddle Sports Bar & Grill at Citymax Hotels and Barrels Sports Pub at the Majestic Hotel Tower.

When it comes to hot spots, the turnover rate is lightning-speed. Like in most cosmopolitan cities, a venue in Dubai becomes a top pick-up spot for a year or two, after which its popularity begins to wane. Another venue replaces it, and so on. We update our lists as often as possible.


Due to safety considerations, many people limit their interactions to within their immediate circle, especially foreigners. While discretion is advised, Dubai has a lively dating scene. Most people who live in Dubai and want to date trans women turn to the internet.

Good Communication is Key

The small talk bit can be tricky, especially if you’re unsure what to say to the person. Once you pick someone up, how do you proceed? What you definitely shouldn’t do is get very personal at once. Don’t broach sensitive subjects, especially if they don’t volunteer any information.

Some people will tell you they had no luck meeting someone to have a relationship with in one of Dubai’s trans-friendly locales. For them, the internet proved the only option. There are many profiles online to choose from. You’ll be having a nice chat in no time. You need to work on a balance between bombarding someone with messages and ghosting them.
