With every celebration of Pride Month, the “kink-at-Pride” debate is raised, involving discussions of whether or not the kink community should be allowed at LGBTQIA Pride at all. Now a survey conducted by kinky dating app KinkD reveals statistics about transgender people in the kink community to show that, yes, they exist… and it’s time to embrace them.

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. This means that 1.08% of the app’s kinksters identify as transgender. 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.

The app similarly identified the top 10 US states with the largest number of transgender kinksters – e.g. California, with the largest number of 1,387, Texas (889), New York (800), Florida (598), Pennsylvania (455), Ohio (432), Washington (427), Illinois (422), Georgia (362), and North Carolina (360). Together with 5,535 from other states, this brings the total to 11,667 US trans kinksters registered on the app.
