    I'm a gay transgender guy and I'm going to uni soon. I know that dating and finding a boyfriend is going to be really difficult, but I'm starting to be concerned that it might be impossible? I pass really well, but there's still the issue of being a female biologically, and I feel that it's unfair to ask a gay guy to be into that. So does anyone have any experience of this? Or know any successful-or-otherwise trans dating stories at uni?

    You will be surprised. If your uni has an LGBTQ association/society, join! I was very lucky with Birmingham because the LGBTQ association was very trans-inclusive so it was easy to be open with people. I personally was not that interested in dating, but my friend is AMAB nonbinary and had similar issues with dating. They're currently in a relationship with a pansexual guy who totally respects their gender, before that they dated a guy who had considered himself straight.

    The thing to keep in mind is that it's not just gay guys who date guys. Bisexual guys and pansexual guys exist too. Besides which there are some gay guys who would feel comfortable dating transguys despite their female biology because they fall for them as a person (and not to be too crude, but there are plenty of toys to imitate a ****!)

    If your LGBTQ association at uni isn't particularly good/inclusive, see if you can find any trans/LGBTQ youth groups in your area. One of my friends met his fiance at a trans youth group, at that time he passed most of the time, but still had female anatomy. In his case, his partner is also trans, so it wasn't an issue.

    Be yourself, you will find someone! PM me if you want to talk.
