“At first, I was scared to come out as transgender because I didn’t give any ‘signs,’ as people say,” he wrote on Instagram.
“When I came out, people refused to believe I was a man because of how “feminine” I presented for 18 years." He started cutting his hair and wearing men’s clothes. He then opted for testosterone treatment.
After 2 years of testosterone treatment, surgery, and spending a lot of time at the gym, Jaimie succeeded in transforming himself into a man. This is something Jaimie always felt inside.
Initially, everyone around him criticised him for being too feminine to become a man and now that he has transformed successfully, people from the transgender community criticise him for being too masculine and trying too hard to become a trans man.
“You are NOT who people think you are, you are who you know you are,” are Jaimie’s words.
He is an aspiring country musician and is already creating a buzz on social media. Also, he is scheduled to perform at the Sziget Festival in Budapest this August, alongside The Chainsmokers, Pink, and Wiz Khalifa.
“I’ve lost my family and most of my friends since I started my transition but in the process, I’ve found out who really cares about me," says Jaimie.
