"This is my personal guide to help face who you are, accept who you are and love who you are, so you can watch your dreams and accomplishments flourish...If I can do it, you can do it too."

Jillian Celentano lived most of her life not accepting who she was. Since beginning her transition at the age of 55, she has been able to live authentically as her true self. In this helpful and practical guide, she offers advice to other people who are transitioning later in life.

Drawing on her personal experiences, she explores topics such as coming out to children, spouses and family, coming out at work, finding your authentic voice, experimenting with style and clothing, and stepping out in public for the first time. She explains how to deal with clocking and discrimination, body dysphoria and the importance of maintaining your physical and mental health. With candour and warmth throughout, this book will support readers on their path to self-love, happiness and acceptance.

Press Reviews

  • Christine Burns MBE, author and transgender activist

    In a world where it has remained hard to transition young, even to the present day, this is a helpful, practical and reassuring guide for those who can wait no longer. Coming out as trans in middle age is not easy but the author uses her personal experience to break down everything you need to do so.
  • Dr. Wenn B. Lawson (PhD) CPsychol Transmasculine & happy!

    40%, this represents the sons and daughters who, every year commit suicide, rather than face their fear of rejection. Keeping one's secret of being in the wrong body, not only ostracizes self from our authentic self, it's societal murder. Jillian's story is a success story, but it nearly wasn't. This story offers hope and a way out. All you need is the courage to take it.
