“I’m considering legal gender recognition in the future, because, I suppose for me, it would just be a sense of…peace.”
Both of Jamie’s parents are fully supportive of his transition, and while they say they have both had to learn a lot along the way, they’ve been there for key moments like helping Jamie to pick his new name.
Jamie is 17, which is currently too young to apply for legal gender recognition. This is despite changing his name and gender on all his other ID documents and being fully out to his friends and family.
