The very distant possibility of doing some work again overseas. So-o…now that I am used to how trans-friendly (or unfriendly) the UK is, which countries are relatively safe, which not?

    For me central/ northern europe are similar or better, southern a bit more problematic and eastern unspeakable.
    Think it makes far more of a difference what kind of socio-economic group you’re in though. Plenty of trans women living in urban estates in the UK and europe who very, very rarely venture out of home.

    I haven’t travelled abroad since pre-transition days, but would consider that countries within Europe, Scandinavia, Australasia and North America would generally be considered safe for transpeople and the Middle East and Africa would be a no-go area, based on various countries’ policies towards homosexuality as a benchmark (given that a country that doesn’t accept homosexuality tends to lump transpeople into the same group).

    Sorry this isn’t really an appropriate place to post this, but wanted to say thanks for all your articles on the Register – now I have another place to check on the web! Glad to hear that one of my favourite writers from the past is alive and well, and simply writing under a new name (was wondering before, but now I know).
    Good health and happiness to you, wherever you may end up writing from (especially if you keep a cynical eye on how the UK is doing)

      aw. thanks! a long way back, when this all started, one or two old hands wondered what the laddish readership over at El Reg would make of my, er, transition. However, i have been incredibly impressed by the way in which those who have worked it out have been supportive. So thanks for the kindness.
