I feel even more empowered now.  I just signed up with TripAdvisor and I posted some happy feedback about transgender-friendly hotels and restaurants that I visited during my recent travels. I love being able to speak out.

I would presume that management reads these reviews and probably pays attention to this aspect especially since it’s relatively unusual in the grand scheme of things.

I had nice things to say about the Fairfield Inn in Flagstaff, the Hilton Garden Inn in OKC, the Best Western in Santa Clara, two restaurants in Las Vegas, Southwest Airlines and Alaska Airlines.

I consider it important to be positive, using the good-manager principle of “catch someone doing something right.” Since many transgender girls tend to be (understandably) bitter, this sort of positive vibe is probably a breath of fresh air.
