This will have been drawn from the work of Erin Reed Though its worth noting her only firm, DO NOT TRAVEL, so far, is florida. Though the rest are of course still dangerous.

      Low-Risk States (AZ, DE, ME, MI, NV, PA, RI, VA, WI): These states have largely refrained from targeting transgender adults, although they haven’t taken extraordinary steps to protect adult transgender rights either. For example, Arizona and Virginia have enacted anti-trans policies affecting youth but, due to state-specific factors, appear unlikely to extend such policies to adults.

        They passed a constitutional amendment in 2008 barring gay marriage. While more recently they are considered a swing state for the presidency it is still not a safe place for LGBTQ+. Heck, their supreme courts recent ruling against abortion access and the other right wing tendencies in the legislature should show that they are not a friend to any community.

        low risk (the government merely restricts the rights of people near your demographic)

    It’s sad as transgender people should feel safe everywhere in the world.

    It ain’t worth much, but even in those missing states, there’s people that support you, even love you. So, I hope nobody trans ever feels like the whole world is against them, even when it seems like it. Trans rights are human rights, period.

    Biden could have codified so many things and instead we get insane fascism w/ a side of “road to Trump’s Project2025” as a treat 😪

    I fear this map will look very different early next year 🤢

    Their loss. Move to a state that respects you as a person. A bunch of us moved when our state told queer and trans people to go fuck themselves.

    If this is anything like the Lavender Scare of 1954 though, this will backfire spectacularly and end up propelling a whole new movement just like the Lavender Scare did, which led to the gay rights movement. Still is incredibly shitty in the interim, though.

      Shitty in the interim for sure, but it’s nice knowing how disruptive it’s getting. I outright tell work places I will not go. I also have brought up the embarrassing but truthful act of needing to look up bathroom laws for places I travel to. A lot of coworkers after meeting me realize just how absurd it’s gotten; and how transphobia affects them even.

      I hate having to be the trans representative for so many people, but the fact it’s had a noticeable affect on people’s viewpoints is nice at least.

      I have some friends in Florida; one moved there recently in part against his better judgement. He told me I’m welcome to stay with him if I ever were in the area. I had to tell him it’s not only dangerous but outright illegal for me to. I’m not risking a fraud charge for having changed my gender marker.

      So yeah. Their loss, and they’re starting to feel it.
