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!

I was a teenager when I first felt I had been born into the wrong gender. Fast forward to 2020, a year after suddenly loosing my wife, and I started cross dressing in some of my wife’s clothes behind closed doors. A year on, now aged seventy years young and I finally “came out” as a transgender female. I am living my life as a full time trans female, and am six months down a road I have been told could take five years. Of course attitudes are a lot different in 2022 compared to the 1960’s to anything LGBT orientated.
I am 82 and my crossdressing has evolved to my wearing women’s apparel every day although it’s jeans, turtlenecks and shoe or boots that are not very different from men’s. Pretty much what other women wear to the supermarket. I’m 6’2″ and weigh 175 pound and the height keeps me from passing as a woman. I couldn’t be a Caitlyn Jenner so because of that plus the complications that would come with it, I dismissed the idea of transitioning . My wife died almost 20 years ago and my crossdressing during our 35 year marriage only consisted of women’s pajamas which she liked me in and bought for me. Living alone let me ease into getting comfortable dressing as I described above, I’ve always had a thing for shoes and now have more women’s than men’s. My daughter knows that I crossdress so there will be no surprises when the inevitable occurs although she has never met Joanna. I have a woman friend who has. When I go out with her I wear mascara and lipstick close to my natural lip color. During the Covid shut in I learned to trim my hair so that I can style it an older woman’s short style. I pierced my ears and wear studs or small hoops such as I have on in the photo most days. Thanks so much Lucille for providing the opportunity to share experiences.
I am 55 and started HRT last fall. I believe you are never too late to start. I have a friend who just did their top surgery and they are 65. You can do any of the work anytime you want to start, just embrace who you are and go for it! My biggest struggle has been with my wife and her response. She does not want to be married to a woman. So we are working through what that looks like. Deciding to transition is the second step. The first is embracing who you are. Being trans is not a choice, if you are, you are. It doesn’t matter when you discover the truth. Its always been there…
I started hrt this summer at the age of 69. It’s been the most profound adventure ever. The emotional impact has taken me by surprise. No regrets. Thanks for article so timely.
I started my journey of self understanding when the kids moved out a few years ago. I was in my early 50’s. I was enamored with panties and pantyhose. I bugged my wife about wearing them one too many times and she responded with, “I don’t want to wear them Anymore, but if you like them so much I should make YOU wear them!”
She was just making a point, but I melted inside and loved the thought of it. Since that time I have evolved and understand my feminine side much better.
She tolerates my crossdressing in exchange for my doing all the house chores, laundry, ironing and more.
I get to feel fully girly and love the feeling of being centered when I’m wearing a dress or maid outfit. I’m mid sixties now, and do everything around the house. She only does what she wants to do around home and yard. I’m loving it having discovered I am happiest serving her and being enFemme as I’m able.
For me, I just turned 60, and have now decided not to transition. Just doesn’t seem worth the effort at this stage.
Good article. I’ve been lifelong crossdresser. Always wanted to be female but I have a supportive wife this time and till pandemic went out often and getting around/yard/errands. That being said, this past December I started on HRT. To early to comment on that yet, but at almost 70, it’s never to late.
Thank you Joelle for your advice and I will deffenetly try to find such a professional to help me with my feelings end see what the best way forward is.
