About Jazz Jennings

As Jazz Jennings says, “I’m trans & proud, but ya’ll already knew that!” At 16, Jazz is one of the youngest transgender figures in the public eye, working as a YouTube star, model, and LGBTQ+ activist. With hundreds of thousands of followers, Jazz is the voice of so many who need someone to help them speak. Her YouTube-turned-TLC show I Am Jazz, which aired its 2nd season in 2016, documents the trials, tribulations, and truly inspiring moments that come with being such a young and famous transgender woman. Through her tweets, ‘grams, and snaps, she encourages everyone to “embrace who you are.”
