Jazz Jennings is a known American YouTuber who was born as a boy but later decided that she would rather be a woman because she felt like a woman. She addresses the issues of teenage transgender who have problems with their surroundings.
She is very strongly against forcing someone to choose their gender against their will or their choices.
Jazz was born on October 6, 2000 as Jared Jennings to her loving parents Greg and Jeanette who became her biggest support in the upcoming years.
Athough she was born in a Jewish family and everybody thought her parents will be against her decision, they showed tolerance and love to their child and they feel like it is what any parents should do.
She was born in the southern part of Florida in United States and she has spent her childhood in a very happy and peaceful surroundings with supportive parents and two elder brothers Griffin and Sanders. They are twin brothers.
In 2004 her family had serious issue to resolve after she was diagnosed with a gender disorder which made her feel feminine although she was really of male gender.
She was 6 years old and her parents realized how serious her life challenges will be since she will have to face the outside world which is not so tolerant to different people.
Her parents knew that she will suffer a lot of complications, especially in school, but they decided that they will prepare themselves and ensure a good life for their child they loved.
There weren’t a crisis when her parents didn’t stand by her side and give her any support you wanted.
Jazz was still a very young kid when she started making appearances in a lot of TV shows where she showed off her bold personality and people begin to like her kind personality and her natural behavior.
Her very first appearance on TV was in an interview with Barbara Walters when she was just six years old.
By this time, she has realized that she could make the difference involving the transgender problems and she started spreading her influence regarding the topic.
So she decided to start some transgender activities which lead to reforming and cultivating people about transgender identity.
She began writing articles for “Transkids Purple Rainbow Foundation” which was focused on helping transgender kids in dealing with the rest of the world.
She made an appearance in the documentary film made by Oprah Winfrey Network which was titled “I am jazz, a family in transition”.
She was very creative and decided to establish her own organization which she named “The Purple Rainbow Tails”.
This was an organization which produced mermaid tails and the money she earned from there wasn’t spent but kept aside in order to help transgender kids with their youth.
Since she had those problems herself she knew how hard the identity crisis can be and she wanted to help other children whose parents weren’t so supportive and understandable like hers. As for the looks of it, just a few parents tried to help their kids in this process.
Jazz has earned some money through modeling for “Johnson and Johnson” company and for advertising “Clean and Clear” products.
She also made a lot of money by making her own YouTube channel where she gained a lot of subscribers and was being sponsored by different companies.
She’s a very strong supporter of LGBT community and often comments on the rights of LGBT people.
She is also the main personality of the TV series “I’m Jazz”.
In 2014, she has released a video on her YouTube channel, where she revealed that she feels as pansexual.
She also earns money by promoting different products. For example she promotes a gender-neutral fashion line called “Wilde Vertigga”.
She was involved in the work of NOH8 promotion campaign which promotes LGBT marriages through educating and through social media.
Her first appearance in a TV show was in 2007, when she was called into documentary series “20/20” in an episode called “My secret self: a story of transgender children”.
Although her parents used to buy her neutral clothing she always wanted to look like a girl and identify as female so she always chose feminine clothes for herself.
In 2013, she made a huge success by getting USSF (which is United States Soccer Federation) to let trans students to play in female teams.
In 2014, Jazz was featured in a known magazine called Time Magazine where she was listed as 1 of the 25 most influential teens in 2014. One year later she and her family were involved in the shooting of the reality TV series called ” I’m Jazz ” which was shown on TLC.
In 2018 Jazz revealed to her fans a d supporters that she’s probably going to have a gender surgery.
She released her memoir titled “Being Jazz: My Life as a Transgender Teen” in 2016.
It is especially hard for her when she sees and hears how people attack her parents because they let her choose her gender when she was that young.
Jazz takes hormone (blockers) on a daily basis and just as her doctor said: her parents saved her life by giving her medications.
She isn’t currently in a relationship and has no public info that she ever was in one.
