Dating app study reveals statistics about Transgender people in the Kink Community

With the celebration of Pride Month in 2022, the “kink-at-Pride” debate has been brought again, involving discussions of whether or not the kink community should be allowed at LGBTQ Pride. A recent survey conducted by kinky dating app KinkD reveals some key statistics about Transgender people in the kink community.

According to the app’s database, there are more than 1.9 million registered users on KinkD, among which 21,328 identify themselves as Trans, meaning that 1.08% of the app’s kinksters are Transgender. The app also finds that more than half of adult Trans kinksters are under 30 years old. According to KinkD, 50.85% of kinksters who identify as Trans are in the 18-29 age group, compared with 42.52% of those aged 30-49 and 6.63% of those 50 and older who are Transgender kinksters. “It seems that from generation to generation, gender as an important part of someone’s identity, has become more socially acceptable to be explored,” said John Martinuk, co-founder of the KinkD app.
