Aging

Transgender older adults face profound challenges and experience striking disparities in areas such as quality of health and access to health care services, mental health care, employment, housing and other areas of livelihood.

Learn more about the key challenges and policies affecting transgender older adults, resources for supporting trans older adults, and your rights as an older trans person.
