I have to thank my friend Marcy Simpson, Founder of Crossdresser Society.com for this article and the research she did to find the cities in the U.S. that are most welcoming for crossdressers. The results are not surprising as there is a sizeable contingent of crossdressers in each of these cities as evidenced by the presence of TG organizations there. And even though Marcy’s research is based on the strong presence of a gay community in each of these locations, it does apply to us.
So if you want to go out en femme and feel safe and comfortable without fear of being ridiculed, the best places for you are the cities that are friendly to gays and the transgendered. To see a man in drag in these cities is not uncommon.
You are likely to be accepted without judgment or scorn.
Well here we go girl! Are you ready?
The top crossdresser friendly cities in the United States are:
– Los Angeles
– New York
– San Francisco
– Washington D.C.
The Municipal Equality Index (MEI) examines the laws, policies, and services of municipalities and rates them on the basis of their inclusivity of LGBT people who live and work there.
The 2015 MEI rates a total of 408 cities from every state in the nation, which is an increase of more than 55 cities rated in 2014.
Then if you are an international traveler, you can be dressed in these cities without any fear (and I have been to all but Sydney)– London, UK – Copenhagen, Denmark
– Tokyo, Japan
– Merida, Mexico – Berlin, Germany – Amsterdam, The Netherlands – Madrid and Barcelona, Spain – Paris France – Sydney, Australia
A special note on Merida which has been rated as the top quality of life and the safest city in Mexico, For more details, check out Tasi’s Musings for Dec 2015 in the Library. The first ever transgender conference, Magic in Merida, will be held in Merida in February, 2017.
