It is a great thing that a growing number of “LGBT older adults” cultural-competency curricula include content about transgender older adults. However, many of these curricula pay little attention to older cross-dressers.
Earlier this month the Times Union of Albany ran a series of profiles of diverse transgender people, including Alison Laing, a 70-year-old cross-dresser who is well-known as an activist in transgender circles. The article is only five paragraphs long, but provides a rare peek at the life of one older cross-dresser. http://www.timesunion.com/fitfamily/article/I-am-still-Al-most-of-the-time-2341883.php
