He's a trans musician. He was assigned a female gender at birth, but in 2015 Jaimie began to transition to the gender he identified with. He's been undergoing years of testosterone treatment to achieve that. "At first I was scared to come out as transgender because I didn't give any 'signs' as people say. I looked and presented very feminine...not because I wanted to but because I felt pressured to make the people around me happy. When I first came out people tried telling me 'this is not who you are' that's when I realized you are NOT who people think you are...you are who you KNOW you are"
21-year-old Jaimie has since been sharing images of how he has changed:
So Jaimie's underlying message to everyone is this that everyone's transition, and transformation, is their own, and to focus on a gendered appearance (even when attempting to pay a trans person a compliment) is not helpful: "People need to stop comparing results. I'm not trying to act like anything I'm not. This is just me ... I want people to see it doesn't matter what someone looks like. If someone has the guts to tell you 'I'm transgender' [or] 'I'm gay' [or] 'I'm bisexual,' anything like that, please believe them and be there for them because stereotypes need to be broken."
