Tolerance & acceptance in Australia?

  • December 11, 2016 11:58 AM GMT



    I'm currently living in Europe, but am planning

    to move to Brisbane once I scrape enough cash to do so

    amongst things like FFS & other surgeries. I've heard many

    good things of Brisbane in terms of trans acceptance.

    I would like to hear the perspectives of the Australian MtFs.

    Honestly, the only thing that concerns me is my safety &

    I acknowledge that I much like my mother am paranoid,

    but my resoning goes as follows: if people accept ones such

    as myself the chances of getting assaulted are reduced significantly,

    because as acceptance increases so does tolerance.

    Life's already too difficult without having to look behind

    one's shoulder all the time.

    I know I'm a little late to this, but personally I found my time in aus pretty accepting. At worst as accepting as other places I've been, and best far more open. There's a pretty laid back attitude in aussie, which can be nice. Kind of a 'no big deal' approach. As always, and sadly (I hope there'll be a day we don't need to caveat this) but there's always the less-tolerant few that you stumble across, but on the whole my time there was pleasant enough.
