Abstract

Several forces conspire to make the later decades a climacteric for transgendered persons. This paper will examine the social, emotional, and hormonal influences that entwine and challenge the stability of the elderly transgendered person. Case studies and therapeutic interventions will be addressed. Within our article, the cases are fictitious and therefore consent was not required for our vignettes.
