Aging is a universal normalising process. No gender identity, no body form, no sex/sexuality is necessarily fixed in time and none of these facets of the human spirit are invulnerable to the ongoing processes of aging. Aging unites us in a way that no other process can. It is universal and inevitable. The emergence of a vocal population of transgender individuals of all ages mandates that we address the problems of aging in this population. The combined stigma of being elderly and transgender can serve as a strong traumatising force in the lives of such individuals. In this article, we focus on the interaction of aging, non-normative body forms and identities, and the law.
