This project seeks to provide "travel advice" for trans travelers (and our companions) based on laws and practical safety within various jurisdictions.
It is not geared towards people already living in a jurisdiction. For instance, laws about medical insurance won't generally be mentioned, as most people traveling will have out-of-jurisdiction medical insurance. Likewise, laws about school athletics will not be mentioned as these generally don't impact travelers. However, information that might impact travelers in different situation will be mentioned. For instance, someone assigned to a business project for several months in a state may need to utilize medical care. Others may travel with children and be concerned about how this could be seen as child abuse or cause child custody issues.
This is also available as a PDF. This may be particularly useful to people needing to cite this information or who want to carry a copy with them on their mobile device. You can access the PDF version at https://TravelWhileTrans.com/output/trans-travel.pdf
