Traveling While Queer: Some Resources

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to travel outside the country with my lovely partner. Our primary itinerary was to Milan, Italy, and we had a layover both ways in Istanbul, Turkey. Both our families freaked out, worried for our safety. We didn't have the same concerns they did, but we did wonder: As a couple comprised of a constantly female-clocked NB and a fabulously-femme lady partner, how would we be received by the people at each destination?

I've never had a partner, but I used to masturbate very regularly and successfully, both before I started testosterone and early on in the treatment.
