I Am Jazz

This documentary 'I Am Jazz: A Family in Transition' was mentioned in the New Yorker article on transgender youth and features the story of Jazz, an eleven-year-old undergoing the transition from male to female. Jazz's gender transition began with cross-dressing and playing with "girl toys" when she was a toddler; now, at the age of twelve, she is taking puberty suppressors. As the documentary highlights, Jazz's family has always been supportive of her decision and together they face the many challenges and difficulties that come up on a daily basis.
