Safety for Trans People in small communities

There was so much to cover, that we are doing this topic again. Question prompts include: What are places, times, or scenarios that have felt safe for you recently? How did you feel during the time, and afterwards? 
What is a way that you do, or would like to offer safety to other trans folks in qathet? Feeling safe is a unique experience to each person; i.e. what may feel safe for some may not be safe for everybody
