(transsexual fetish)

Andromimetophilia (sometimes misspelled as androminetophilia) is an attraction to women who imitate men[1] or to female-to-male transsexuals, both preoperative,[1] or postoperative.[2]

The paraphilic counterpart to andromimetophilia is gynemimetophilia[citation needed], the attraction to men who imitate women, or male-to-female transsexuals.

Both paraphilias could be interpreted as an attraction to androgyny. Tranny chasers may be defined as andro- or gynemimetophiliacs.
