Being Jazz by Jazz Jennings
Teen advocate and trailblazer Jazz Jennings – named one of “The 25 Most Influential Teens” of the year by Time – shares
her very public transgender journey, as she inspires people to accept
the differences in others while they embrace their own truths.
Jazz Jennings is one of the youngest and most prominent voices in the
national discussion about gender identity. At the age of five, Jazz
transitioned to life as a girl, with the support of her parents. A year
later, her parents allowed her to share her incredible journey in her
first Barbara Walters interview, aired at a time when the public was
much less knowledgeable or accepting of the transgender community. This
groundbreaking interview was followed over the years by other
high-profile interviews, a documentary, the launch of her YouTube
channel, a picture book, and her own reality TV series – I Am Jazz – making her one of the most recognizable activists for transgender teens, children, and adults.
In her remarkable memoir, Jazz reflects on these very public
experiences and how they have helped shape the mainstream attitude
toward the transgender community. But it hasn’t all been easy. Jazz has
faced many challenges, bullying, discrimination, and rejection, yet she
perseveres as she educates others about her life as a transgender teen.
Through it all, her family has been beside her on this journey, standing
together against those who don’t understand the true meaning of
tolerance and unconditional love. Now Jazz must learn to navigate the
physical, social, and emotional upheavals of adolescence – particularly
high school – complicated by the unique challenges of being a transgender
teen. Making the journey from girl to woman is never easy – especially
when you began your life in a boy’s body.
My latest Minecraft build: a hidden trophy room/tomb with a secret entrance, second secret tomb, and two golems – who promptly climbed into a fountain and won’t get out. I feel like I should offer them a rubber ducky or something …
