The thought of being transgender didn’t really occur to me until 2015 when I was 67. From childhood I always knew that there was something different about me, but by late high school/early college I thought I might be gay or bisexual. However, that notion was thoroughly suppressed and I did the traditional career-marriage-kids thing. In a way, this was reinforced when I had my first encounter with a man at age 49. There was a very natural feeling and it just felt very pleasurable Without any sense of revulsion. It wasn’t until many years later after I started dressing that my thoughts shifted. I thought I was a crossdresser until my wife commented: “You may be transgender.”. I won’t go into the detail of the story, but when she said that, instantly many things began to make sense. In a way, that was a bit like shock therapy. That one statement broke through the layers of suppression and denial that I had fabricated.
