#1 – Jaimie Wilson
By the time Jaimie Wilson was 15 years old he knew he was meant to be a male, but was born female. With is strictly religious and conservative family, he had to hide his true identity. His family was transphobic and would never accept that he wanted to be male.
#2 – Clothing
He had to hide everything about himself, including masculine clothes that he would hide in his drawers under his girl clothes. He was too afraid to disrupt his family life to tell, but it was making him miserable having to live a life that was a lie.
#3 – Scary
“Honestly, it was extremely scary because I didn’t think I’d ever be able to transition. I thought it was something I would have to live with for the rest of my life. I didn’t tell anyone how I was feeling because I was afraid of losing everyone.”
