Intersections of Trans Identity and Aging

As we age, things change—physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually! We live in a culture that stigmatizes getting older, even though it’s a reality we all face. The subject of aging in general is often swept under the rug, and trans elders face significant additional challenges that only add to our fears and concerns. As aging AND transgender people, we need to be prepared. This interactive, facilitated discussion will allow us to hear each other’s stories and share our individual experiences, with the goal of attaining strategies, tips, concerns, and camaraderie for this uncharted path.

Note: This conversation will be centered on the experiences of who are 55 and older and is open to all who wish to listen, learn, and grow.
