ROMEO

Gender & Orientation

Be yourself, go for what you want.

ROMEO stands for diversity, where everyone is welcome. Here is an overview to help you navigate the feature. Express yourself, understand the terms and find what you are looking for.

Two stats for your profile

Gender

Man

You were assigned male at birth and identify and live as a man. This may also be referred to as cis or cisgender.

Trans man

You were assigned female at birth but identify and live as a man. This may also be referred to as female-to-male (FTM).

Trans woman

You were assigned male at birth but identify and live as a woman. This may also be referred to as male-to-female (MTF).

Non-binary

You define yourself in between a man or a woman, or as wholly different from these two categories. This may also be referred to genderqueer, agender, bigender.

Orientation

Gay

You are a man or a trans man and you are sexually attracted to men.

Bisexual

Your sexual attraction is towards both men and women.

Straight

You are attracted to the opposite gender. This option is only available in combination with trans man and trans woman.

Queer

You do not want to confine yourself to specific labels of sexual orientation.

Seek who you want, and have fun!

Fill in “What I am looking for”. Choose: age range, dates, friends, love and gender and orientation.
Use the search option “Looking for my gender and orientation”. We will show you only the users who are into you.

A final appeal to all our users

At ROMEO we pride ourselves on being one of the most diverse platforms; from young to old, sex-dates to friends, with a range of gender and orientation options.

Some platforms have dozens of gender and orientation options to choose from. We believe that a shorter list supports worldwide understanding and helps you find the right partner. If you do not see yourself in our options, then we apologise. Please select ‘other’ and describe this in your profile.

We spoke to trans users in a focus group, and many serious topics such as rejection from other users were highlighted. Transparency is not the issue, our trans users are open in their profile to avoid painful rejection. With these changes we want to empower all of our users to make their first move with confidence.

At ROMEO, every user has the option to find what they are looking for. How? Simply fill in or update your profile and start searching! So, if you’re only into queer men, just say it. Honesty is always the best policy and makes it easier for ROMEOs to contact others without fear of rejection. Let’s increase activity, increase flirtation and help everyone find what they are looking for.

Unfortunately, even in the LGBT+ community gender and orientation discrimmination exists. 40% of trans teenagers have considered suicide. This is unacceptable! Never forget, the trans community started Stonewall and their fight continues. Today many funding requests sent to the ROMEO Foundation are from very brave trans projects.


Girls, boys and everyone in between, we are damn proud of you!
