SURVIVAL

Against all odds
When life is not just meaningful
Those moments ur thoughts are just flames
You have just one thing to do!

Friends would not help with words,
They would even castigate you when you're not on there level.
At that moment u'll think life is not worth living coz love is no where to be found.
You have just one thing to do!

You journeyed through the desert of life,whilst in the middle of this, Success is only guaranteed coz
You have just one thing to do!

You think life is not fair
You assume mother earth choose to ignore you.
You even insinuate you are destined for such fate.
In midst of all of these.
You have just one thing to do!

Survive!!!

You've gat to survive
You have all it takes
You have the Survival instinct inside you.
Don't let the world weigh you down
The words of men are not to be reckon with.
So just listen to that salient voice coming from your heart.
You have to survive at all cost.

Travelling As A Trans Person In Africa

BY PRINCESS ILONZE


Despite the worldwide clamour for equal rights and freedom of sexual expression, there are numerous reports of members of the LGBTQ+ community and especially members of the trans community being mistreated and rough-handled in airports all over the world.
The truth remains that despite the covering that international laws provide, there are still about 80 countries - a large portion of which are in Africa- where merely being suspected of being gay or trans is a criminal offence.The penalties range from 2 years imprisonment to whipping and even death. Needless say, as a trans man or woman, you would have to take the utmost care when it comes to domestic or international travel within the African continent.
 Also, considering that being openly gay, crossdressing, transgender or transexual is illegal in most parts of Africa, there are no provisions made to cater for the sensitive attention that a trans person might need at the airport. If you are trans and intend to take a trip to certain parts of Africa, you will need to take some precautions to avoid unnecessary complications at the airport or during your trip.
  
Planning your Trip
 Before booking your flight or making concrete plans, it’s of the highest importance that you ascertain the safety of your proposed destination. Research can’t possibly be overemphasized when it comes to travelling in Africa while trans. It’s important to learn about the laws of the land, find out about local organisations and groups that are trans friendly. At the end of this post, you will find a list of African countries and their stance on LGBTQ+ rights as this is often a mirror of the domestic stance on trans people.
 Apart from what is written in the laws, there are also unwritten norms which govern how you will be received in the place you will be visiting. This is equally, if not as important as what is written in the constitution because it determines the reception you will get once you arrive at your destination.
 In case it might be a turn off, you should be aware that most, if not all African countries, have yet to consciously provide gender neutral bathrooms. Also, possession of sex toys is mostly frowned upon in African airports and might attract undue attention. It might also be regarded as evidence of sex work, which may result in detainment.
 Before you book your ticket, you will definitely look into where to stay. Regardless of what country you choose to visit, it is most advisable to visit bigger cities for several reasons. Compared to rural dwellers, those in the urban areas are more likely to be accepting of people’s differences. Also, your country’s embassy is likely to be located in the capital city of the country you choose to visit. If you choose to visit Nigeria for instance, then you might want to consider a budget hotel in Victoria Island or  the cheap hotels in ikeja both suburbs are located in the country’s commercial capital. At hotels.ng, you can get pretty good deals on hotels. I’ve heard Federal Palace Hotel in Victoria Island is particularly good.

Travel Documents
 Acquiring a VISA from an African country will be the first hurdle where travel documents are concerned. In countries with liberal law where LGBT rights are recognised, it should be easier for you to attain a visa. South Africa visas as well as Rwanda visas should not prove to be too much of a hassle. Otherwise, it would be advisable to speak with a staff of your embassy in the country you intend to visit. There you can get direct information about how best to proceed.
 In most countries, the law requires that the gender marker and name on your boarding pass must match the one on the government-issued photo ID and that all passengers over the age of 18 must provide proof of identity both at check-in and at security. In this case Africa is no different and this makes being a trans traveller rather tricky.
 As of today, no African country recognises non-binary or third gender classifications. This means it would be best to use the information -name and gender specifically- that appears on your passport or your photo ID when booking your ticket. That is, granted you haven’t updated your travel documents and ID. If your appearance no longer matches your ID, make sure you take a note from a verifiable medical practice explaining the change in your appearance.

Packing and Security Checks
If you wish to travel with needles, syringes, or hormones, you need to take proof that they are prescribed. Keep all your medical supplies in one bag so they can be easily screened. If your hormones need to be refrigerated, ask flight crew to store them for you. In case that isn’t possible, carry a thermos with you. You may also want to  consider checking these with your luggage unless you’ll need them in the air.
Most airport security checks do not require that you take of any non-metal clothing items you are wearing. This also applies to prosthetics. However, due to the African norms, to avoid undue attention it may be best to keep your prosthetics in your carry-on bag and request for private screening. 
If you are a transman who packs, ensure your packing piece doesn’t have any metal parts. Also, be aware that a heavily bounded chest may cause unwarranted attention because it may appear that the passenger is hiding something underneath the wrap. When it comes to a body search, the best route is to ask to be screened privately.
