trans friendly destinations outside of western europe & US


We are a family of 4 with 2 kids ages 14 and 11. Our 14 year old is non-binary but they appear trans to other people. We love to travel and unfortunately, realize that we must be very careful about the destinations we travel to due to concern for our child's safety. We understand that we may get looks wherever we go, but we want to avoid destinations where people might be outwardly hostile. We recently traveled to Japan and it was awesome. Italy had a lot of looks and snickers/whispers, but nothing more than that. We will be going to Iceland in summer and are excited about that. Are there any destinations outside of US, Canada and Western Europe that people recommend as trans-friendly? I'm not really talking about the laws of the country being trans-friendly....I'm talking about the day-to-day people. We had wanted to consider New Zealand, Cayman Islands, Morocco...but are concerned about some of these now. Any ideas/suggestions that we can add to our future travel? Or anywhere that you would definitely avoid? Thank you so much!

Have you considered cruising? Cruise ships are very safe places for all.
