Age is a popular topic around here and I’m occasionally asked…
“Am I too old to crossdress?” or “Am I too old to transition as a transgender woman?”
NO, of course not!
Whether you are a so-called mature crossdresser – or an older MTF woman beginning her transition – it is NEVER too late to be your true female self.
I believe that the true desires or your heart are meant to be expressed – no matter how long they’ve been buried.
Is it true that your age may have an impact on hormone therapy or surgery? Yes, that’s possible. But a good doctor will guide you on your best and safest options.
The fact remains that you can transition and/or present yourself as a woman at any point in life.
In fact, embracing your feminine side can give you a whole new lease on life…
I see it all the time: People seem to grow years younger when they make the decision to be themselves fully.
Having the courage to express your true self also inspires others to do the same. The world needs more of this!
In the words of Laverne Cox:
“It is revolutionary for any trans person to choose to be seen and visible in a world that tells us we should not exist.”
I’ll say it again: You are NEVER too old to be your true female self.
So, I encourage you to take that next step and do whatever it is that you’ve been holding back on.
You deserve it. And it’s not too late!
Do you agree that age is just a number?
Now I’d love to hear from YOU on this topic…
How old were you when you decided to fully embrace your female self? (Or are you still waiting?)
Let’s continue the conversation in the comments below!

Age is chronological as well as a state of mind. With 70 being the new 50, I find that one has a better outlook on life and is more redy to express their true selves. I was suppressed while married and finally came out at 70. I live my femme life 24/7. I am so liberated and happy. I am 76 and not considering surgical transformation but I will be a woman in my heart and mind until the end.
I agree age is just a number. Its how you feel inside and how you view the world around you. Being feminine is a road of discovery and an adventure. Embracing your femininity inside is more important.
Non è mai troppo tardi. Il futuro, è il caso di dirlo è più roseo.
I am touched by the kind space offered by Lucille on an issue that has long troubled me. When I was a child I used to think that by teenage my need to wear girls’ clothes and shoes would go away. In teenage, I thought getting married and having a family would mean an end to this innate compulsion. Grown up with two teenage girls, I said OK, old age will see to my lifelong dilemma. It hasn’t. The urge is still strong. Thank goodness, I find solace in reading the comments from my ageing sisters. It gives me the courage not to despair. On the contrary, I find myself getting to terms with my own female self….Thank you all.
I am 66 Years old and being treated for liver cancer and that will not stop me in any way. I’ve come to far in my life to let this control me. Like everything in life it’s just another bridge to cross. In the words of Aerosmith’s song Amazing. Life A Jurney Not a Destination

Hi there, I cannot currently transition for my wife doesn’t like anything about me being trans or a crossdresser. There is no middle ground. Eventually I will transition fully but it may not be for years yet. I do have friends that have helped me decide to be more feminine, and support the change.
That is awesome! Happy for you!
