Where is the most accepting and safest place in America for a full time crossdresser to live?
20 year old straight, male to female crossdresser, work in professional engineering field, and am a full time crossdresser, wanting to relocate, so where are the most accepting towns for transgenders and crossdressers? I have heard Seattle, San Francisco, and Vegas, any one have experience with these cities, or other ideas?

I can vouch for Seattle because I'm from the area. Very friendly towards crossdressers and other trans folks, especially on Capitol Hill. Surrounding areas aren't too bad either. San Francisco is of course legendary in acceptance towards crossdressers. Other places than what you mentioned are Portland, LA, Chicago... More

Give some thought to Boystown in Chicago. Almost exclusively gay neighborhood and pretty much the safest place in the city there is.

Heh. Probably San Fran. I don't remember what it was like, really, last time I was there, I was about 7 or 8. But besides that and Vegas, I'd guess South Beach. The closer you are to a warm coast, the better your chances, I'd say. Not really sure why that is, but it seems to be true.

San Fran and Chicago. I lived in the Wrigleyville/Boys town area of Chicago, and I think its a really open positive place to be. Go out in drag and the boys will whistle at you. San Fran is a crazy place, you could have a lot of fun there too.
