    Hello people! I am an experienced ESL teacher who’s worked in Japan twice (once on JET, once for a dispatch company) and is looking at the possibility of heading overseas to each again. The challenge in my case is less qualification and more my personal situation. In my previous stints in Japan I lived and taught as a cis male, but I am now out as a transgender female. What I want to know is if it would even be possible for me to get a job teaching in Japan or another east Asian country while living as my authentic self? Does anyone know if one place would be a better bet than another (country-wise)? Am I daydreaming by thinking it’s even possible to work overseas while transgender?

    Thank you for your help.
