Default Transgender individual looking to become crew

I've been researching cruise career opportunities and so far am happy with what I'm seeing. Unfortunately, when looking for information concerning trans crew members, there's not much information. Would they consult me when choosing a male or female room mate, or just choose for me? What happens if your room mate is prejudiced, or otherwise uncomfortable with rooming with a trans person? Could you request a switch, or mention it ahead of time for them to place you with someone who is also LGBT?

Aside from that, I get weekly shots. I have all of the items needed (paperwork, medicine, syringes, etc.), I just have to have a person to deliver the shots for me. Would the medical staff be able to do that every week?

I am already aware that the boat is like a tin can, that I will be stuck with people and some might be prejudiced. I am also aware that gossip run rampant and everyone will be aware that I am trans by the first week. I've never tried to keep it a secret, but I also don't 'flaunt' it. I'm more concerned with what to do when I have a room mate who will be sharing the tiny cabin, and they have a problem with me.
