S2: E30: Traveling While Trans, How to Pass as a Canadian
Being in an airport is always a stressful time- we've all had moments traveling when we had to hurry through security when you notice your running late to your flight. Traveling for transgender individuals however, comes with an additional layer of anxiety that many cisgender individuals take for granted.
In the second part of this two-part series, Isaac and Cyn are joined by Simply Good Form's own Emma Stanley (She/Her) who is a frequent flyer and an expert at 'boymoding' to ensure she can get through security without any hassle. Emma shares with her experiences with border security officers, traveling to foreign countries and provides advice to fellow trans travellers who may be second guessing their upcoming trip.
We are also joined by Veronica Landry of Boot Prints Hiking Tours in Nova Scotia. As a local tourism and experience provider it was important for Veronica to ensure she was taking the steps to be inclusive and welcoming of LGBTQ+ travellers and hikers. Veronica has an LGBTQ+ special hiking multi-day tour in Cape Breton this summer, at the end of Halifax PRIDE festival. More details on her website.
Hey, Cis! is a beyond binary conversation in being a better human.
We are about current affairs and gender-based issues affecting trans and non-binary youth, students and adults within our Maritime community.
We take on difficult topics; (and this week it is a difficult topic), breaking us out of the binary, smashing stigma and fostering greater connection between our cisgender community and trans, gender creative and non-binary community.
