Before I even started playing the new GTA, I knew there would be trans women in it. I knew about where and when I could find them. I knew what their jobs would be. Because to the people this game is made by and targeted to, we can only be one of two things: secret ‘batin’ fantasies or sex workers moaning about hormones and their private parts.
When I found and greeted a group of them, the main characters had the following things to say:
Michael: Hello, sir. I mean, madam. I mean, ~whatever~
Michael: Well, hello, Mid-op.
Franklin: Almost fooled me, (bro-she?). Almost.
Franklin: Hey, you need to keep taking your hormones!
And the trans women said the following as I creepily eavesdropped and took photos of them (remember, these quotes were intended to be funny.):
Trans woman: I don’t think the laser treatment is working!
Trans woman: They won’t let me on the ladies’ basketball league at the rec center. This is crazy! I think I’m going to sue or something.
Trans woman: (on the phone) I Just wish he’d let me untuck more… I dunno if I wanna lose it forever, and he needs to understand that!
A couple of additional things, since this post seems to be more popular than I expected it to be:
The trans women can be located at night outside the Cockatoo Nightclub and Pitcher’s (the purchasable gay bar). Their locations are in the highlighted circles on the map below. In case someone wants to look into this themselves.
Also, I saw some people asking about this on Twitter: I couldn’t get the trans women to say any new dialogue after getting involved in a fight with them (they attacked me, as most male and a few female npcs will do if you stay near them, too long.).
And if I continued to try to speak with them, the character I was playing as would use the generic dialogue he used for all male npcs, saying things like “hey, man” and “sup, dude”.
The trans women probably have more dialogue, too. If you leave them alone long enough. That’s just what I happened to hear.
