Heads Up! Dealing With TSA Regulations if You’re Transgender

With all of the news about the new TSA patdowns, and their treatment of people with urostomy bags and breast prostheses, anyone with any kind of medical or cosmetic device needs to know how to navigate their way through the system. And that is especially true for transgender people, since transphobia and negative reactions to people who defy gender norms will only make these situations more challenging.

The National Center for Transgender Equality has a really useful article about what transgender people need to  know to get through a TSA patdown. And it’s full of useful information no matter what your gender identity is. Give it a read, pass it on.
