I’m 65 and just started HRT four months ago. I have been very hesitant to come out to the world at large and live my truth 24/7 or even in public. This is because of what being born in the mid 50s has done. Everything was gendered and boys did not do anything that smacked of feminism at all. Both my family and peers looked at everything through that lens. I made the mistake of telling someone in middle school that I liked to dress. I was then the object of ridicule and worse. My father was no different. I learned to do everything in secret. As I was finishing with my counselor today she mentioned she had other transgender clients and that I was the oldest of the group. After thinking about what she said I wondered (and I hope those who read this can help) whether the younger generations (those in mid life and younger, or those my age) find it easier to express themselves publicly whether 24/7 or in public in different situations. So, there’s my question at last. Thanks.
