SILVER SPRING, Md. (CBS DC) – Jazz Jennings lives just like any other 14-year-old teenager. There is just one thing different about Jazz, she was born a male named Jared.
The trailer for the TLC show “I Am Jazz” shows her hanging with friends, bowling, being at the beach with her family, and how she handles social issues with people that don’t want to be around her.
According to the video trailer of “I Am Jazz,” the parents discuss how nervous they are for their little girl to go to high school and what might happen when more people find out about her nontraditional gender identity. We even find out that the grandparents didn’t really know how to deal with the situation, so they turned to Google.
The audience gets to find out what it’s like to grow up being transgender in “I Am Jazz,” which premieres on Wednesday at 10/9c.
