A farmer from rural Ireland has proven that it’s never too late to be your authentic self by coming out as trans at the age of 65. Erica Coates, who runs her own farm in Cork, Ireland, told the world that she is a trans woman on RTÉ Radio One yesterday (July 3). Erica always knew there was something “a bit different” about her – but it was when she saw a trans person on Irish television that things started to change. “I always wanted to leave my hair long and loved the idea of having earrings and jewellery but I never knew anything about transgender,” she said. “I had just kept it to myself totally for years and years,” she said. Erica Coates, a farmer from Ireland, wears pink wellington boots on the farm since she came out as trans. Last year, Erica went into a local Debenhams store in Cork to buy make-up and ended up telling the woman working at the stand that she is a trans woman.
