TRANSITIONING AFTER 50 - Five Years of a Life Changing ExperienceI created this website to have my book, Transitioning after 50, available online and for everyone to read.
Next to providing my book, this website also contains additional information, and pictures, about transitioning from male to female, as well as showing my progress in the form of the five picture scrapbooks I created from each year documenting my own journey.
These five picture books are an open window into my life, almost day by day, that I am sharing with you. Most is Trans (health) related but also normal day to day family and work life. You can defiantly see the difference in my quality of life. For the better.
On this website, in the near future, I will list information to books, DVD's and links to other valuable websites, in regards to being transgender and the LGBTQ+ community.
Why five years? Let me quickly explain. I spent a lifetime searching for myself and at age 50 I came out and started my transitioning. That’s the first number 5 in my reasoning. When I visited my endocrinologist he told me it is going to take 2 to 4 years to transition. Since I was already 1 year out and 3/4 of a year on self-mediation, I figured it's 5 years after my initial start.
So sit back and enjoy watching my first 5 years into womanhood.
The postings on my website are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views, positions, strategies, or opinions of other transgender, non-binary or LGBTQ+ members, as well as medical professionals. This is my experience, and please be advised, yours might turn out different.
I am still working to create and update this website. This will take time, a lot of time.

TRANSITIONING AFTER 50 - My transition timelineThe following is a summary of my transition timeline over the last 6 years.

Now I am pretty much just riding out the things that are needed to maintain my health. One thing I like to point out is that facial hair removal is the most time and money consuming part of my transition.
