    I’m 60 years old and see my doctor tomorrow to begin my transition process, all I want to do is take HRT, to fullfill my dream of becoming a woman. I grew up in a time of ignorance regarding the, “sex change”. So was always lost and confused about my identity, could never talk to anyone about it, so I became somewhat withdrawn from the normal adventures of growing up. I did find someone to share my life with, and although our marriage is over we are now better as best friends than husband and wife. In fact it’s my best friend who has given me the courage to pursue my change, she says she worked me out a long time ago, that I was never the man she hoped I’d be. But it hasn’t been 30 wasted and will remain best friends always. As it’s HRT I’m wanting, would I still be called Transgender? You just don’t know, there’s so many titles. I hope someone can tell me. Regards Kirsty.

      Hi Kirsty, welcome to the site.

      Transgender is an umbrella term, for someone who doesn’t feel they align with the gender assigned at birth.  This could mean the opposite binary (male to female or female to male) and something in-between (non-binary, transmasculine, transfeminine, agender, gender-fluid).  Some transgender people may need to change their title (Mr/Ms/Mx), name, pronouns (He/She/They), dress/presentation, hormones or undergo one or more surgeries, some may need to some of these, and some can cope without needing any of these.  Everyone has different triggers, and different levels of gender dysphoria.  Not needing or not having access to medical care, including hormones or surgery, does not make anyone less transgender.  I hope this helps.
