The United States of America is a melting pot of diversity because of its people who come from different cultural and racial backgrounds. LGBT rights can vary from state to state so transsexual dating is different from California to Maine. Even the rules for changing gender on a driver’s licence can vary from state to state. Bigger cities with a more diverse population tend to be more progressive than others. While smaller cities and towns tend to be more conservative.
Transsexual women in the USA, just like most of its people, can come from different races. Before European settlers arrived, the Native Americans referred to transsexual people as “two-spirited”, and are highly honoured in several tribes. There’s also a huge population of trans women with Asian ancestry in Hawaii, California and throughout the west coast.
Bigger cities have LGBT pride parades every year and have little towns and communities in most states that are centred around the LGBT community. And in recent years, there has been more LGBT visibility in the media. Trans celebrities such as Laverne Cox, Caitlyn Jenner, Chaz Bono and Carmen Carrera are some of the personalities that are helping educate the masses regarding trans issues.
Though there have been instances of discrimination and violence against trans women in the United States, there are more people who are open, tolerant and accepting of the LGBT community. Most states are providing trans individuals with full rights and pushing forth equality in the US.
