In 2010 the Obama administration changed the rules to make it easier for trans people to change the gender marker on their passports. I finally got around to changing mine in 2012 (I was traveling and moving around so much that I just didn't have the time to send it out and wait for it to come back). Last month they finally changed the rules for the Social Security Administration, and today I finally got it done. But, before all these great rule changes came through, I lived and traveled for nine years, as a woman with an 'M' on her passport. In honor of finally wrapping all this shit up, I thought I'd share some of my more interesting travel stories.
