There are literally thousands of temples across Bali. Small devotional shrines are scattered throughout the rice fields, in every private compound, and even on the grounds of hotels. Every day shopkeepers place offerings outside their shops, and it is common to see people carrying offerings to their local temple. Some of the larger and more impressive temples, which are well worth visiting, include Besakih (the Mother Temple, situated in Eastern Bali), Uluwatu (perched high above the sea on the southern coastline), and Tanah Lot (the impressive Shore Temple).

Temperatures tend to be milder in Ubud and the central highlands, while the northern and eastern regions are generally warmer and drier. The summer months (November to February) are classified as the "wet season" but most days dawn fine, with showers holding off until later in the afternoon and evening. The perfect climate for a gay vacation in paradise.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
