First Dates had a beautiful LGBTI moment on last night’s episode (19 November).
The show sees strangers meet for a blind date at a restaurant in London.
Viewers saw 25-year-old Danni, a trans woman, go on a date with 28-year-old Aiden.
Quickly, sparks flew, as the pair got to know each other.
First Dates has amazing LGBTI moment
Danni, who works as a make-up artist and model, instantly seemed like a good match for bar manager Aiden.
Both admitted to being a little hungover, having had a heavy night before.
‘I’m still wearing the same clothes I went out in last night,’ Aiden confessed.
But then their connection deepened when Danni opened up about her gender identity.
‘I’m setting up a lingerie brand. Basically I was very frustrated looking for lingerie…’ she started.
‘I basically want to make products because I couldn’t find anything made for trans women. Which is me!
‘Oh my god I’m so happy I got that out of the way.’
Aiden smiled, and said: ‘I didn’t notice. I didn’t realize. It’s not a problem for me.’
Their connection deepened even more when Aiden revealed he was pansexual.
The couple were so taken with each other that they agreed to a second date.
Viewers love the couple
Viewers loved the couple.
India Willoughby, trans broadcaster, said: ‘Danni you’re beautiful – well done tonight!’
Others on Twitter said: ‘danni and aiden. I love this show.’
Another said: ‘Me and Charlotte are quietly weeping at how sweet that trans/pansexual date was.’
One said: ‘Really pleased for Danni and Aiden’
But do Danni and Aiden have a future? Turns out no.
On Twitter, Aiden revealed it’s unlikely they’ll be seeing each other in the future.
He said: ‘I lost her number and she hasn’t text me so we don’t talk now.’
Ah well. True love will come!
First Dates continues next Monday on Channel 4.
