Las Vegas trans people

Las Vegas, renowned for its glitz and glamour is also a great place to connect with trans folks.

The city promotes diversity in all aspects of life and has numerous inclusive spaces for the LGBT community.

And thankfully, this article will help you navigate these places. We’ll cover everything from TG-friendly bars and clubs to community centers.

Join us as we talk more about the best places to meet trans in Las Vegas and the positive outlook of the locals towards the community.

List of TG Friendly Venues in Las Vegas

For the most part, every other venue you’ll visit in Las Vegas is LGBT-friendly. But of course, meeting trans folks at these places is always a hit or miss.

That’s why, we’ve outlined some sure-fire ways to help you connect with the community.

1. Bars and Clubs

Tranny bars and clubs in Las Vegas

There are quite a few venues to meet TG’s and the majority of them are located on the Las Vegas Strip.

And while you’d generally encounter friendly people here, keep in mind that The Strip attracts tourists from all over the world.

At times you might come across people that have rather controversial political leanings or attitudes.

Another area that stands out for meeting the trans community is the Arts District.  

Let’s help you explore some bars and clubs in these areas.

The Phoenix – This bar offers a warm welcome to everyone regardless of their gender and sexual affiliation. That makes it a hotspot not only among TGs but also drag queens.

OddFellows – They host different events on certain nights including LGBT-friendly parties. You can learn more about their calendar through their Facebook page and plan your visit accordingly.

Double Down Saloon – If you’re looking for a full-blown punk-styled party atmosphere that attracts trans individuals then this is the place. But the majority of the people here just want something casual.

FreeZone – What makes this bar special is that it’s not only a great place to meet trans people but also it’s a safe space for non-binary and genderqueer folks.

Piranha Vegas – This place used to be called the “hottest gay club of Las Vegas”. But now, as you can see, it has a more mixed crowd and especially attracts transgender and crossdressers due to its drag shows.

2. LGBT Community Centres

If you want to connect with the local trans and queer community, we recommend checking out a place called The Center.

It’s a hub for various events that welcome everyone. You don’t have to be a local to attend; even people from out of state join in to network with trans folks.

The venue also offers free events for all ages – and hires members of the LGBT community as its staff members. You can chat with them as well to learn more about places to find trans.

Another place is the North Las Vegas Equality Center. They have trans-related social and support groups for both younger (18 or under) and adults.

3. Pride Pool Parties

Vegas is known for its crazy pool parties, and some of them are also geared toward the LGBT community.

One of them is hosted by The Luxor by the name of Temptation Sundays.

And while it’s labeled as a gay pool party, there’s a high possibility of encountering trans folks there.

Another option is these Pride Pool Parties hosted by Sahara every Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm.

It’s a must must-visit for anyone who wants to soak up the sun in an accepting atmosphere and socialize with trans men and women.

4. Pride Parade

Pride month is celebrated in most countries around the world in June.

But in Vegas, Pride celebrations take place in October, primarily because of the cooler temperatures during that time.

Even then, you’ll find some organizations that host events in June – so it really works out in our favor.

You can directly learn about upcoming events by heading over to the Las Vegas Pride website.

5. Trans Dating Sites

Online dating is booming in Las Vegas so naturally, you’ll find trans folks on many dating platforms.

To start with, you can always try more popular apps like Tinder. If you’re also transgender, we’d recommend explicitly mentioning that in your bio.

It would really save you a ton of time and help you find your desired matches.

But if you’re cisgendered then tough luck because Tinder doesn’t have a feature that lets you exclusively filter out trans profiles.

In that case, you can opt for niche sites like Taimi which focuses more on the LGBT+ community.

6. Other LGBT-Friendly Venues

Lastly, when it comes to meeting T’s in Las Vegas, there are a few other venues worth exploring:

The Erotic Heritage Museum stands out as a fun and inclusive museum that offers thought-provoking exhibits and hosts cool events. You’ll quickly notice their LGBTQ-friendly atmosphere, making it a welcoming space for all visitors.

For a hangout spot owned by the LGBTQ community, Bad Owl Coffee is an excellent choice. Not only can you enjoy a cup of coffee, but you’ll also find occasional fun events to further socialize with trans folks.

Another option to consider is Madhouse Coffee, which provides a cozy and inviting environment. While we’re unsure if they regularly host events, it’s still quite popular among the LGBT community.

What It’s Like to Be Transgender in Las Vegas?

Nevada has laws across the state that protect against discrimination based on gender identity.

This makes Las Vegas one of the most trans-friendly cities in the world.

To give you some perspective, most clubs do not hesitate to hire trans women as dancers.

I have a friend who has worked in numerous Las Vegas clubs over the years. Not a single girl has discriminated against her.

But yeah, you might still encounter some greasy old men from time to time who’d pass some insensitive remarks and use offensive words like “tranny” or “shemale”.

Don’t let that get to you and just visit one of the inclusive places that we’ve covered above to connect with open-minded people.

Common Questions From The Trans Community

Does Las Vegas have a centralized LGBT area?

Las Vegas does not have a centralized LGBT area, but that’s only because of how welcoming the city really is. Pretty much every area is trans-friendly and you’re unlikely to face any sort of discrimination.

Has the Las Vegas Lounge closed?

The Las Vegas Lounge, a bar serving the transgender community in Southern Nevada since 1999, unfortunately, closed its doors for good on May 1, 2020.

This was one of the few bars in the state specifically catering to transgender patrons and played a significant role in providing a welcoming and inclusive space for the community over the years.

Where to meet trans women in Las Vegas?

Taimi is one of the largest platforms for transgender in Las Vegas. It’s a great place to meet both MtF and FtM trans for friendships, casual dating, and long-term relationships.
