  1. Stana -

    I've vacationed as trans many a time, but all with carefully chosen limits - including not getting off cruise ships in Caribbean ports that are not trans friendly. Do you know of any LGBTIQ friendly TA's who could advise me about air travel across borders AND travel conditions in certain western countries.

    Sisters, Don't miss the documentary "Casa Susanna" tonight on PBS at 9 PM (check local listings). This film explores the first known transgender support group in the 1960s, offering a glimpse into their weekend haven in the Catskills. Casa Susanna provides a fascinating and informative look at a time when expressing your true self as transgender could be dangerous Paula G

    1. Please do check your local listings. PBS in NYC, Boston and Connecticut are NOT airing "Casa Susanna" tonight, so your local PBS may or may not be showing the documentary tonight.

    Traveling while dressed as myself has been an incredible journey. Here are some of the highlights:

    The US:

    Atlanta: The Perimeter Mall, especially during Southern Comfort conventions, offered a welcoming atmosphere.
    Philadelphia Suburbs: King of Prussia Mall provided a comfortable space to explore.
    Chicago: The Marriott Naperville became a familiar and friendly home base.
    Boston: This university town proved to be very accepting of all gender identities. I ventured out about once a month.
    Los Angeles & San Diego: Both cities were incredibly open and welcoming.
    Las Vegas: Anything goes in this city – a perfect escape for self-expression, albeit a bit hot in the summer.
    Beyond the US:

    Amsterdam: This European haven offered a liberating experience, it is the bachelor party destination for the EU.
    Canada: Toronto A generally open and accepting country for all gender identities.

    Not in Chicago neither!

  5. Let's not forget what might be the ultimate TG/CD vacation destination, Provincetown, MA. Most of the B&Bs are LGBTQ owned, and that's probably the case with the hotels, too. Be careful going there -- you might not want to return home! Ha!

    In addition to this location, New Orleans is also a city that welcomes everyone and loves their TG/CD people, especially their drag queens!

  6. Not saying some of us overpack, but the model is only going away for the weekend...
