TSA has a program called TSA Cares which handles security at the airport on an individual basis. If you call 72 hours before the flight, they will assist you through the screening. You tell the TSA desk when you get to the airport that you requested a Specialty Cares person and they get the TSA officer to help you. The phone number is 855-787-2227. Works for special needs and metal parts too.

Thanks for this tip, AnnazMom.  There have been enough horror stories of gate agents handling trans travelers badly.

      You can post here anytime as well Regn and while it may take some time you will certainly get a response. Even if you don't get messages on the TGAA list serve i hope you will come to the Zoom meetings as well. They are at 7 on Mondays, 9 on Thursday, 6 Saturday and 8 on Sundays....all eastern time.  There is no need to use speak or use your video but listening can certainly help.  It certainly helped me.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I am glad to hear that there is something out there at least. But there really should be more. It's just common sense. Spouses of trams people are put under tremendous pressure and need support. I can't really say any more on that. But if she ever does decide to try forums, we do have a forum for family and friends of transgender.   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾

      As it says in the title I have finally gotten up the guts to go back to the docs after my first failed attempt, I will totally be ready for the mental health comments this time but any ideas on what else to expect? Should I be doing research on stuff and how much should I actually tell them?   Thanks in advance  Connor

      I have had my nipples pierced and my belly button. These I did my self.  I don't have them anymore.   I do like them a lot though.    Not to much into tattooing for me      love the toe rings          My wife does not like them on me

      I don't think you are crazy Julie. It's unlikely that I would have done the same, but I try to avoid politics. I am not an activist as such. That said, many times over my life I have done similar things without thinking (I am not thinking trans here, but I have been a bit of a rebel). We all do to some extent. My thoughts are to look at possible consequences, and be ready for them. Minimise any risk. Bullies tend to be such in their environment, but often subdued outside of it.   Tracy

      Tattoos seem to be one of the main things which make me feel my age. When I was little, women locally would never ever contemplate a tattoo. It signified a tart at the very least! I remember some elderly male relatives having tattoos. They looked dingy on their aged wrinkled skin. I am not against them in general, but would not recommend them and not have one myself.   I personally don't go in for piercings either. Ears would be Ok, but I don't wear earrings often enough to make it useful.   I am probably very old fashioned, but I grew up in an earlier age and social circle.   Tracy

      I see Vicky found the emoji I forgot to mention.  😂   If you click the emoticon button in the editor, there are a ton of new options, including our old favorites.
