So be sure to check out the National Center for Transgender Equality's travel tips for transgender individuals. They also offer a FAQ on Whole Body Imaging (PDF).

Trans genders unite! Lets tie up the system with paperwork so that potential terrorist have more freedom to do their destructioin. -- Arizore
