I’m 48, and while I didn’t begin my transition until five years ago, I would likely have realized my authentic self many years earlier if I’d had the resources that youth have today. The idea that non-binary trans identities in particular are only a fad for attention-seeking tweens and teens is particularly harmful. There are plenty of middle-aged and older non-binary trans people out there; we’re just invisible or not taken seriously.
