    Hey! So, all of my friends are 18 and I am also 18 but I can't get ID because:

    No. 1: I can't afford it.

    No. 2: I'm transgender and I would have to get a passport with a female gender marker because I don't have a gender recognition certificate yet (I am stealth and on medication - so you wouldn't be able to tell that I was born female and it would be embarrassing feeling like I am constantly getting outed).

    No. 3: I am due to be going to court before the end of this year to attain a gender recognition certificate, so even if I could afford it a passport would be a waste of money.

    So, I was wondering, despite not having any form of ID would my friends be able to buy me a drink when we are out without them getting into trouble?

    Depends where you're going out, some places require ID just for you to be let in but if you're sitting at a separate table at a bar (not near the actual bar) they shouldn't notice and you should be okay for them to buy drinks for you. Having said that one of my friends got kicked out of a bar for buying a drink for her friend so you'd just have to be careful
“Yanny” or “Laurel”
