A tranny chaser is an individual who is sexually attracted to transgendered people. Originally (and still predominantly) used to describe the men interested in pre-operative transwomen, the term tranny chaser is now being used in FTM communities as well.

Many members of the transgendered community (particularly in the MTF population) use "tranny chaser" in a pejorative sense, because they consider it a fetish-like attraction to the penis of a pre-operative or non-operative transwoman MTF or to the vagina of a pre- or non-operative transman.[citation needed]. This is similar to the women portrayed in futanari pornography although transwomen may totally reject this equivalence.

Helen Boyd and Mildred Brown have suggested that tranny chasing men may be homosexual men in denial[citation needed].

In "Diary of a Drag Queen" Daniel Harris describes four types of men interested in him while he was cross-dressed, heterosexual men who wanted the presumed superior oral services of another male, homosexuals who were only interested in his genitals, other cross dressers, and men who were intrigued by the mixture of maleness and femaleness he represented.

Janice Blanche in "Transgender Road Map" (2007) suggests that these men are of two main types, homosexual gynandrophiliac (repressed homosexuals) and autogynephilic gynandrophiliac (men erotically obsessed with transsexualism or becoming transsexual themselves).
